Having trouble writing dialogue? Remember these three things: Dialogue should reveal character. Each character should have his or her own agenda. Dialogue must have some kind of tension (conflict) in it.
Dialogue is never just talk even in what seems to be a casual conversation say between the protagonist and the antagonist. If your protagonist and antagonist are merely commenting on the weather and both agree it’s a nice day, that tells the reader nothing.
But suppose the two disagree. This disagreement will reveal character, agenda and it certainly will have tension; and the disagreement will echo the underlying themes of the storyline.
In a short story, a very short story, a flash fiction story and in the novel good dialogue can make or break a piece of creative writing. Dialogue is an important tool in the tool box of the writer and the blogger. If blogging is the question, dialogue may be the answer.
