It’s a lot more than just He said/She said: dialogue can make or break a scene or story. Learn what makes effective dialogue, how to bring your characters to life through what they say and do, and how to handle thorny problems like exposition. Also, learn to spot deadly dialogue that saps the strength of your story, from Tom Swifties to the dreaded As You Know Bob.
