Carla Norton -- PSST! SECRETS TO WRITING GREAT DIALOGUE. Description: Whether you're writing a scene of subtle seduction, or ratcheting up suspense with an accusatory rant, your characters want to speak. In this workshop, you'll learn ways to loosen their tongues and create distinctive voices while moving your plot forward. We'll explore how sensory detail can enable your protagonist to "read minds" without straining credulity. You'll discover techniques for turning mundane conversation into punchy dialogue. We'll discuss the importance of point of view, word choice, and sentence structure. And you'll see how questions, interruptions, and subtext can pick up the pace and breathe life into a scene. Dialogue samples will be provided, but bring your own short sections to work on as well. If you want to rid your manuscript of extraneous chitchat and dull exposition, this workshop is for you.
