One of the most frequent pieces of advice our editors give to our authors is to use the "Show Don't Tell" technique in their writing. We hear it so often, but how many of us actually know what it means and how to use it in our own writing?
This guide teaches you what the phrase actually means, how to spot when you should be 'showing' and not 'telling' (and when it's ok to 'tell') and how to perfect this technique.
"Ugh. My characters all sound the same and writing dialogue feels so forced."
Probably quite a few times if dialogue is not the favourite part of your writing.
How many times have you said that to yourself?
If you can't get a handle on writing dialogue it is going to hold you back from making your book as awesome as it could be!
As we were going through some of our regular manuscript appraisal reports, we noticed a consistent pattern of problems for our writers that kept cropping up when writing dialogue.
So here's what we created for you...
We decided to compile a guide to perfecting dialogue based on those issues we had seen throughout our reports.
The guide teaches you how to tackle each of them in your own writing - without having to go through the process of a manuscript appraisal first.
You can save that for when you think your manuscript is the best it can be and is ready for another pair of eyes!
