   • Create dialogue that drives the story
   • Weave dialogue with narrative and action
   • Write dialogue that fits specific genres
   • Avoid the common pitfalls of writing dialogue
   • Make dialogue unique for each character


Along with dozens of dialogue excerpts from today's most popular writers, Write Great Fiction: Dialogue gives you the edge you need to make your story stand out from the rest.
