I’ll be in Portland, Oregon on Wednesday, November 15 to present a workshop on writing dialog. Thanks to Oregon Writers Colony for inviting me! We’ll have beer, wine, pizza and me all for $20. Sounds wrong, but you get the idea.
When editors (or readers for that matter) are bumped out of stories, the culprit is often clumsy or boring dialog. We’ve learned to avoid writing wooden dialog (er, or have we?) but what about dialog that grabs hold and intrigues or moves us?
