Top 9 Sites on Dialogue – I used them myself


Dialogue was and still is one of the greatest challenges for me as a writer. It took tons of reading of books on dialogue, articles, online tutorials, and reading some of my favorite books before I started pumping out dialogue that I didn’t want to scrape after I had written it. I still have to work hard at it, but now I at least feel comfortable with my own abilities. The list I have compiled are some of the resources I used to improve my dialogue. I want to thank those who provided their knowledge for people like me who were willing and ready to listen and learn!
