Author Elizabeth Sinclair will be discussing how dialogue is the voice of the characters as they actively engage in conversation within the story. Each character’s voice should be distinctive, a personal signature strong enough to be heard in the reader’s mind. We'll be discussing dialogue, as well as punctuation, should you or should you not use dialect, stimulus and response, tagging the dialogue, and much more. When we're done you'll have your characters conversing in a way that will hold your reader's interest throughout the book.
