Summary: (Hints/Tips)

  1. Never use dialogue as an information dump.
  2. Use simple dialogue tags: let the characters’ words speak for themselves.
  3. Use dialogue beats to help with story pacing and to convey information or emotion: dialogue beats are brief depictions of character action inserted in between dialogue that help bring the scene to life.
  4. Remember that often less is more: people tend to say things as short as possible.
  5. Be careful when writing a dialect: don’t make it too heavy, or you might annoyed the readers.
