Joined Up Writing Podcast – Episode 19 – Writing Dialogue

Have you shared the show with at least one friend yet? If not, why not?!

Remember, this is YOUR SHOW – keep tweeting us, leave your comments below, check out our Facebook page and let’s get Joined Up!

In this episode we follow-up our Screenwriting tips with a chat about dialogue. How your characters talk, what they say and how they say it can take your story to a different level and add real power to your prose.

We talk tags, vocab and the never-ending debate around the use of ‘said Vs pontificated and other elaborate verbs’. Chuck Wendig gets a brief, but special mention for his mastery of poetic profanity as does a little tip we picked up from a recent blog post from Drew Chial.

Since recording the show, we also found a great post over at Write To Done on 10 Easy Ways to Improve Your Dialogue.

Thanks to everyone who has been listening, commenting and sharing the show so far. We have big plans for the coming months, including some live shows, a YouTube channel, readings, top tips and regular story competitions – BUT  WE NEED YOUR FEEDBACK, SO GET INVOLVED!
