Dialogue PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Dialogue free pdf Every writer knows the benefits strong dialogue can bring to a story-a faster pace, greater believability, increased tension, and even humor. But not every writer knows how to achieve it. And, unfortunately, weak dialogue can destroy a story even faster than strong dialogue can improve it. Weak dialogue can drag the pace to a halt, make your characters feel stilted, and confuse your readers. In other words, to write great fiction, you need to know how to write dialogue that shines. In "Dialogue: A Busy Writer's Guide," writing instructor and fiction editor Marcy Kennedy shows you how to get it. Inside you'll learn... how to format your dialogue to keep it clear and easy to follow, tricks to avoid the dreaded As-You-Know-Bob Syndrome, how to use dialogue to manage your pace, increase tension, and bring your characters to life, the secrets to dealing with dialogue challenges such as dialect, starting a chapter with dialogue, and using contractions in historical fiction and fantasy, and much more. Each book in the "Busy Writer's Guides" series is intended to give you enough theory so that you can understand why things work and why they don't, but also enough examples to see how that theory looks in practice. In addition, they provide tips and exercises to help you take it to the pages of your own story with an editor's-eye view."

About Marcy Kennedy

Marcy Kennedy is a speculative fiction and suspense writer who believes fantasy is more real than you think. It helps us see life in this world in a new way and gives us a safe place to explore problems that might otherwise be too difficult to face. Alongside her own writing, Marcy works as a freelance editor and teaches classes on craft and social media. She's also a proud Canadian, the proud wife of a former U.S. Marine, owns five cats and a dog who weighs as much as she does, and plays board games and the flute (not at the same time). Sadly, she's also addicted to coffee and jelly beans. You can find her blogging about writing and about the place where real life meets science fiction, fantasy, and myth at www.marcykennedy.com.
