30 Day Character Building Challenge

Day Thirty

Dialogue.

For the last day of our journey, I wanna keep it simple.

You would be surprised how often people struggle with decent dialogue.

An easy enough trick is to hold these conversations with yourself. It sounds and feels crazy, but the payoff is worth it. If a line sounds wrong coming from your mouth, it’s possible it reads with the same awkwardness.

Make sure your characters sound different – you want to be able to tell who’s speaking when you read. If the characters start to morph into one person, they become boring!
