Great example! Your little diddies are helping me with some rewrites I'm working on.
Thank you for these. Dialog has always been hard for me.
@Shelly - Great, I'm so glad they are helping you!@Kelly - You are very welcome!
Making every word count holds true in all our writing. Sometimes it can be difficult to cut words that we really LIKE, but in the long run it will make our writing stronger. Thanks for the tip.Blessings!Pam
I like the dialog example, thanks. :-)Uyen
yes, these have been very helpful. many thx ....
But how do you get to "No, but listen..." without the "did you see the TV show?" (That's just me being a little snarky. Good tip.)
Brent, Well, you'd have to re-work it a bit. BTW, "snarky" is just an interesting word.
this is exactly what I need right now. I'm revising and I find I write useless dialog all the time!
Great advice! Only the best words count in the long run.
Erin, I'm so glad it is helpfulPetra, Yep, only the best words count.
I appreciate your comments! I try to respond to each one.
