I had a little bit of a panic moment last night when I realized that I don't really know how to write good dialogue. One year of posts and I think I included dialogue only a hand full of times.
How the hell am I going to write an entire memoir when I don't know how to write dialogue? Suddenly, a year seems like a very short time to learn everything I need and write something worthwhile.
Then I slowly talked myself off the edge and went on-line and read a couple of articles about how to write dialogue (surprise, surprise, almost all of the articles said listen to dialogue in the real world then practice writing it down and reading it out loud).
This is going to be real work!
Any tips you have on this?
