the ups and downs of life

Writing life

Writing comes naturally for some. I would rather write words than speak them. Certain things mean more written. They can evoke a feeling that we just can’t say.

I have trouble with dialogue, though, at times. I can describe a scene and a feeling but when it comes to breathing life into those characters with words I sometimes lose momentum.

I’ve been reading this free e-book that is helping me overcome my problem. It’s called Writing Dialogue by Tom Chiarella. This book is thoughtful, engaging, wise, funny, helpful and full of examples and tips.

If you need help making your characters communicate, try this book. I can’t remember where I found it but I’m sure you could Google it and locate it. It’s helping me a lot!
