Question is, Would you like to have a new mini-course on Dialogue like the current mini-course on Plotting?
Answers are either YES or NO
Comments and questions about dialogue are welcome.
Freakin’ Survey Gizmo didn’t work this time, either.
If you’re interested and don’t want ask a question or write a comment, just log in (in the column to your right, under META, and you’ll need to make a new account if you haven’t created an account for my web diary because I host the thing here and your generic WordPress login will not work.

Yes. I’d finish with the courses in the Feburary sucks bundle first, but once I’ve done that I’ll likely continue getting whatever courses you put out. I find the implicit encouragement in your courses inspiring enough that they are worth it even without the content.
I’d love to get a Beta Copy. As for spoilers, i think i’ll wait until I’ve read part one, Ruby Key and before reading it. We’ve only got til May to wait. You did say it was only for fun right?
Whatever I know, it’s not as much as I think I know. So – yes, please!
Yes! Thank you !
Yes. I would sign up for it, Holly. I’m always interested to hear what you have to say on any writing topic.
Yes, most definately. Personally, dialogue is one of my biggest issues.
hopeful says Yes!
Yes. Oh, yes. As I found, by writing, that for some reason my characters are pretty chatty.
YES. 😀 (Agreed with CrstinWriter)
Yes. Writers can always use help with their writing.
Yes, I would be very interested in a course on dialogue.
Yes. I would be interesting to read what you have to say about it.
Let me think a moment … YES!!! of course^^. Plot and action are no Problem for, but my dialog allways seem clunky to me
I love you other courses they’ve helped me a lot with my writing so all I can say is yes, yes, yes to a dialogue mini course.
Yes please, it would be wonderful
Yes (always open to learning more).
Count me in, YES!
Please and thank you, Holly.
Yes, this is a great idea. The plotting one was really good. It would be great if this could be a series.
Great idea and something I really need help with – yes, yes, yes!
Thank you Holly.
Yes, please thank you! 🙂
Yes. Wonderful idea!
A resounding YES to a mini-course on dialogue!
Yes, please. If it wouldn’t take your time and attention from something else you really ought to be doing.
I feel that dialogue is one of my strengths. (I’ve written a couple of plays, and theatre’s a good training ground. An amateur actor or director who really adores community theatre makes a knowledgeable and outspoken critic.) That said, sometimes you gain more from polishing your strengths than from dragging your weaknesses up to a better class of mediocre.
Yes! I’d love to see what you’ve got to say on the subject.
Yes I would love and appreciate a new mini-course on Dialogue like the current mini-course on Plotting? I can use all the help I can get.
A most definite yes! 🙂
ABSOLUTELY!!!….. we can never learn enough, there’s always room for improvement.
Yes! My dialogue is too stilted.
Yes, I’d love to see another mini-course of yours. Sometimes I feel my dialogues are very wooden, like everyone was standing there doing nothing while waiting for their turn to speak… especially when more than two people are involved ^^;
Yes, I am interested. Thanks for the offer. I appreciate all the effort you have put into the courses so far.
Sure! My dialogue tends to run away from me, or maybe run away with itself. I can always use pointers! Thanks!
Yes. Dialogue is one of my strongest things, but that doesn’t mean I know everything about it. I figure I can always learn something I didn’t know that can kick my writing up a bit more.
My answer: Depends. Dialogue is, I think, my strong point. So if you were thinking of another mini-course, say on researching or world-building (I don’t write sf or fantasy, but my settings/worlds can be sketchy) I would go for one of those before I would dialogue. But if it’s a question of dialogue mini-course or nada, I’d love it. Any of your writing instruction is helpful, and I know I can always learn more about any aspect of the craft.
Yes!! HECK, yes!!
I actually feel like I have a pretty good handle on dialog, but I’m equally certain that there’s always room for improvement (does that even make sense? it’s still early-ish here…). In any case, I would value anything you have to say on the subject. 🙂
Good God. Survey Gismo doesn’t work at this, either.
I would love to see a mini-course on dialog. I know I tend to have a problem using ellipses in my dialog. Mainly to simulate pauses, but I think I may use them too much.
