    This is a nice little guide to writing dialogue in fiction Chiaralla s focus is on listening to real people talk, how they talk, what they say emphasizing any dialogue your write is from the characters perspective rather than the writer s or for the benefit for the reader.There are a number of techniques for doing this, and a excellent last chapter on dialogue tags, and punctuation Most informative

    This is the first reference book I picked up on my own and I really did learn a lotthan I had expected to Some bits were slightly repetitive and could have beenimpartial There supposedly aren t any hard and fast rules when it comes to writing, but I did find some along the lines of rules mentioned in the book worth following.

    The best thing about this book is it demolishes your notions of dialogue, of listening, of silence and restructures the way you see friends, family, and creative media Writing Dialogue, while thorough, also moves with both lighthearted examples and biting wit By far one of the best books on writing that I ve read.

    Very helpful dialogue tips here, for any writer Beware of a few profanities, however.It includes exercises at the end of each chapter that seem helpful, but I have yet to try them I look forward to doing so, and implementing his fresh suggestions into my own writing.

    This book on writing dialogue is chock full of useful exercises and applicable skills and techniques Everything is communicated clearly and supported with examples I liked it so much, I actually bought myself a copy for future reference.

  9. Nikki says:

    If you like books about writing, this is a good one It s clear and helpful It s not so much into cheerleading the fledgling authors as teaching the tricks of dialogue It s very focused, so you are given tons and tons ideas for just dialogue It s a tad dry, but good.

    This was a very helpful book The descriptions and examples were excellent I think many of the exercises in this book would be helpful for those who are not interesting in writing fiction They would make youobservant Help you enjoy the life around you .
