3 Tips for writing dialogue

A few things to know before you start.

If you have tried writing before and dialogue got in your way of a good story. Then there are a few basic tips that you should know.

Tip #1 - Read books

This may or may not be an obvious one. The next time you read pay attention to the dialogue between characters. Notice the difference between the dialogue from a first-person or third-person view. This is a good way to learn from other authors.

Tip #2 -Use lots of adjectives

"He said" or, "She told" can get really repetitive after a while. So try sprucing your dialogue up with some adjectives. Adjectives in a way can cover or distract people's attention from the repetitiveness and can give more detail to your characters' emotions.

In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. John 1:4

Tip #3 - cut out

As stated in the last tip "he said" and "she told" gets repetitive. So here's a writing drill for you cut out the word "said" and "told" not for a whole book but if there is a different word you can use then use it. This will make your book more interesting and more descriptive.

That is all the tips

I hope some of these helped you in some way. just remember to have fun with your writing.

Thanks for reading!
