Have I ever found using dialogue to be hard?
Yes, I did find writing in dialog very, very, very hard! At first, as a newbie writer I was overwhelmed by the mention of the need to use dialogue to make any novel a good one. So, what did I do?
I took the task of doing this:
Hi, Sam. How are you?
Hey, Sally. I’m good. What about you?
The above are two phrases with words being exchanged between two people. So, first. I went through writing any conversation between one of more characters like the above. Then I did this:
“Hi, Sam. How are you?”
“Hey, Sally. I’m good. What about you?”
In this second set, I then went back and added quotation marks. Then, I did this:
“Hi, Sam. How are you?” Sally asked as she walked by.
“Hey, Sally. I’m good. What about you” Sam asked turning around to face her.
I hope this helps you all!
