Twitter Dialogue Clinic

When social media isn’t being perverted to censor dissidents and manipulate elections, it sometimes achieves its intended purpose of bringing people who share common interests together. Occasionally you even see useful ideas being exchanged.

A case in point recently occurred on Twitter, where a number of award-winning and best selling science fiction authors held an impromptu clinic on writing dialogue. Yours truly even chimed in at the end.

Dialogue 1

Dialogue 2

Dialogue 3

Root out “As you know, Jim” maid and butler dialogue. Your sentences work for you. Put them on double duty. Following these rules will give your writing a significant leg up on the dreary workshopped prose that NY publishers are trying to pass off as cutting edge sci-fi these days.
