20180804_140229 Writing good dialogue panel at ArmadilloCon 2018
Authors Arianne "Tex" Thompson and Mark London Williams at the panel on writing good dialogue. The panel was full of laughter (as you can see in the picture) and Tex's trademark rustic witticisms.
Here is my blog post with some of their advice writing good dialogue: be indirect / make several passes, start a scene as late as possible, instead of "he/she said", describe an action the character did.
There were also interesting observations about interactions between languages of higher-status and lower-status cultures.
