Fifteen minutes long, because you're in a hurry, and we're not that smart.

15.15: Dialog

Your Hosts: Brandon, Mary Robinette, Dan, and Howard

Listener questions drove this episode, and there are only two of them but they were pretty good drivers.  Here they are:

  • Is it a problem that all my dialog ends up as logic-based debates between characters?
  • What can I do to create more variety in my dialog structure?

Credits: This episode was recorded by Joseph Meacham, and mastered by Alex Jackson.

Homework: Remove all description. Now remove every 3rd line of dialog. Now rebuild the description replace with body language.

Thing of the week: The Lost Future of Pepperharrow, by Natasha Pulley, narrated by Thomas Judd.
