New Mini-Course?

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 Holly, I am interested
    WoW your work is incredible.
    A quick question: I would like to know the difference between Dialogue and actual Conversation.
    Thanks, once again,

    Yes, please. My written dialogue is as awkward as it is in real life. 🙁

  • laubaineworld Mar 18, 2008 @ 12:48

    YES. I’m definitely interested. I’m always eager to learn new tips on Dialogue as well as plotting!

    Yes, I think it would be a very good idea. My dialogue needs help, I know that. 🙂

    And Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Holly!

    Yes! I too have a problem with overuse of ellipses. And just odd dialogue.

    Yes, I would love to see a new mini-course on dialogue. I love your courses and I have learned a lot!!!

    Yes, please. Dialogue is what I need the most help with. And PS-I loved the Create A Plot Clinic. Thanks!

  • KimiD Mar 15, 2008 @ 8:55

    Absolutely! I think it’s a wondeful idea! Thanks for suggesting you do one and thinking of taking the time to do it. 🙂

    Yes, that would be great. I feel casual dialogue is one of my strong points, and I can often pull off the ‘feel’ of a fairly common, non-emotional scene well with the dialogue. However, I find stronger, tighter, more emotional (any sort of emotion — anger, fear, excitement etc) scenes don’t come out as natural. That’s probably because I’m fairly reserved and don’t say those types of things very often, and I don’t have much experience with them.

    So, yes, please! Sorry for the ramble.
