He Said – She Said.

Filed under: writing techniques — freethepen @ 1:58 pm

Boys Fishing Ever overhear a conversation. “And then she said,” one person would say. “And then I said,” he would explain. Write out a dialogue that you witnessed. If you can’t find one, write one in which you were part. Put in details such as tone of voice, dialect, pitch, volume, smell of breath, form of mouth, teeth description, lip size, or other details. Get out your Thesaurus and find alternative descriptive words. Writing takes one thing and one thing only: practice.

Keep the pen moving,
