How do you become a better writer? By keeping on writing, reading, and learning. And there's one area that can either make or break a book.
"Write Better Books, Save Time AND Improve Your Book Sales by Improving ONE SINGLE Part of Your Craft"
It should be easy, right?
I mean... we all talk. We know how dialogue sounds in real life.
Making our characters talk to each other should be a breeze.
And Yet, It's a Struggle to Get Dialogue Right
You listen to how people talk in real life, and you realize that you can't use that for your fiction at all.
They will repeat themselves, stammer, use er a lot, be long-winded, agreeing with each other...
... and overall be boring if it was written down and shared as character dialogue.
Readers Want Natural-SOUNDING Dialogue, Not Natural Dialogue
In other words, dialogue should be believable and close to how real people are talking. But with all the filler weeded out.
And of course, we all have our own voice and way of speaking.
Only trouble is that we don't give it much thought. It's just the way we talk.
Some expressions will be picked up from friends or family, some will be favorite expressions we came up with on our own.
Expressions aside, though, there's one thing that makes each of us unique. And that thing has a strong influence on what we say.
Psychology Is Not Just for Living Human Beings
Every bit of psychological theory that works on real human beings, works for characters as well.
Why wouldn't it?
After all, they are made in our images, right?
They are dealing conflicts, tests, problems, love, hate, loss and gain, just like us.
To be believable, they must react and behave like us.
So obviously psychological aspects that affects us will affect our characters as well.
Our characters react to the same psychological triggers as we do. And that shows in their speech as well.
Hi Britt Malka here with a message.
An important message.
Writing should be fun.
I've said that for years. But unfortunately that doesn't mean that we're not struggling as writers.
Writing dialogue can be a struggle.
The first one is to tell two characters apart. How do you find their authentic voices?
Write voice journals, some say.
A voice journal is when you sit down and write from your character's point of view as if you were that character. It can be a snippet of diary, a rant, anything.
You must keep writing until their true voice comes forth.
I wrote and wrote, but I never felt certain that what I found was that character's true voice.
Then I heard about rapid releases... and who has time to spend seven hours writing voice journals for each character in a book?
There had to be a better way.
And there is.
But why is all that important?
Why Should the Reader Be Able to Tell Your Characters Apart by the Way They Speak?
It's not always possible, of course.
Real human beings sometimes sound like each other as well.
But overall... Your reader should be able to know when your heroine speaks and when your hero speaks without reading the dialogue tags.
And no, using dialect will not work. It's tiresome to read in the long run.
One way to tell your characters apart is when you KNOW that character A would NEVER say what character B just said.
Making what your characters are saying different, makes them whole and rounded characters. They'll go from being flat 2D characters to living, breathing 3D characters in your reader's mind.
Have You Ever Seen Captain Jean-Luc Picard Talk Out of Character?
If you're a Star Trek fan, and you've seen Next Generation, you will in a few episodes have seen Captain Picard talk unlike how he usually did.
You knew that, because the character was familiar to you. You've gotten to know him through many, many episodes.
So when he suddenly didn't talk the way he usually did, something was wrong. He was either possessed by an alien or something similar.
That's the Power of Knowing a Character Well
The writers for Star Trek knew him well. You, if you're a Trekkie, knew him well.
But what about the characters in your stories?
You might know them all pretty well after a while, but what when your heroine speaks to the new cashier at the supermarket? How will his words be?
There's ONE Way of Knowing
There's just ONE thing you must know about the character, and it will help you come up with realistic dialogue.
Dialogue that readers can use to tell the characters apart.
And knowing that one thing and writing the dialogue, that's something you can learn and practice.
After a while, dialogue will come naturally to you while you're writing, because you've integrated this learning.
And when you know how your characters will speak, you'll save time and you can write faster and more fluent.
You don't even have to write voice journals, unless you want to.
When I finally found out what I needed to make realistic dialogue, I could have kicked myself for not doing it sooner.
After all... we're talking about a recognized psychological mechanism here.
By knowing just ONE thing about my characters, I could cut down on my writing time and produce realistic dialogue.
As a plus, I also figured out how to weed out the on-the-nose parts of my dialogue, and I share that inside ABC Dialogue Method as well.
The book is just 28 pages long.
Can you possibly learn everything about dialogue in so few pages?
This course will give you the theory about ONE aspect of dialogue writing and it will give you exercises as well.
It will not tell you about grammar, punctuation, quote marks, dialogue tags or similar.
What it will do is talk about the one thing you must know about every talking character in your book and how you can use it within the dialogue.

PS Imagine knowing what your characters are going to say and simply type it down as fast as your fingers can move. That's the power of knowing only one thing about your characters. That one thing makes all the difference.
As writers we tend to focus on the big picture. Plot structures, settings, characters and all of that.
Too often we ignore the "small" things. Things like dialogue.
It's a mistake we all make. And it's a big one.
Dialogue is one of the fastest and easiest ways to improve your writing.
"ABC Dialogue" does not teach you everything you need to know about writing dialogue. However, it teaches you a SIMPLE and EASY way to improve your dialogue TODAY!
If you're writing fiction it would, in my opinion, be a huge mistake to pass up on this training.
