Dialogue allows the reader to hear your characters talking. And just as we judge people in real life by what they say and how they say it, your reader will judge your characters by what they say and how they say it, too.
Hello, my brother and sister bloggers, readers and writers from all over the world! This is the Old Soldier with another edition of the New Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette, the blog about how to write flash fiction. Let’s discuss dialogue.
Dialogue is not just talk. Any time a character speaks, that character reveals his or her personality; that character reveals what he or she thinks about what is going on in the story. That character reveals needs and wants. Dialogue is the most important part of the soundtrack of your story. Dialogue moves your flash fiction story towards its resolution.
So, when you write dialogue for your characters, be aware of how much what your characters say and how they say it reveals about them; because your reader will be listening.
