Remember the line, “You’re not very bright, are you? I like that in a man,” spoken by Kathleen Turner in the movie Body Heat. She will be forever associated with that line of dialogue. That’s what great dialogue can do.
Hello, writers of erotica and my Flash Fiction Fanatics. Kathleen Turner’s character is not the only character that can use great dialogue. The characters in your flash fiction sex stories can use great dialogue, too. Great dialogue makes a very short story come alive because it makes the characters come alive. So, what are some of the elements of great dialogue?
- Narrative movement
- The speaker’s personal agenda
All three of these elements must be in the dialogue of a story for the characters to come alive. If you like sex in your flash fiction and you want to see how these three elements work, click on the Sexy Stories tab at the top of the page.
