Writing Dialogue

First of all, I promise that once Script Frenzy is over I'll talk about more styles of writing than just screenplays, but in the meantime...

I was just reading an article over at Script Frenzy entitled: 5 Tips for Dialogue That Make Strong Men Weep (I'll admit that it wasn't just the topic that made me click on the link, the title was a big draw). It's not so much that there's anything NEW in the article, but it's well written and I liked the author's approach. And I find the thing with books and articles about writing (like so many other crafts), many authors write the same basic content... but it's HOW they write it that determines whether it will work for you or not. And this article worked for me. Hopefully, it will work for you, too.

The author of the article also has an interesting blog called everything comes together at 2 a.m. about scratch fiction and photographs. What is scratch fiction, you might ask. Well, this author defines it as short fiction written for the internet. I just wish he listed categories because, as gorgeous as his photos are, I'm really just there for the articles and the scratch fiction.

1 part shy intellectual, 1 part edgy chick, 1 part sophisticated woman, 1 part mental patient (after all, sanity is a type of conformity)... what's your mix?
