Naked Dialogue: How, When and Where to Go Tagless
Posted by Angela Ackerman
Happy Monday, Musers! Today I have a guest post up over at the Awesomo Tabitha's Writer's Musings blog on NAKED DIALOGUE. In it I discuss tagless dialogue and how and when to use it properly. I also supply a few ideas on how to think beyond only using it to increase pace or give the reader a break from tags, citing examples of how naked dialogue can make your writing a bit more savvy. I hope you'll check it out!
Because dialogue is a huge portion of any novel, all writers must really understand how to do it well and I can't emphasize its importance enough. In fact, underdeveloped dialogue ranks number six on my Seven Deadly Sins of Novel Writing Series.
I'm also hearing rumors of several dialogue-focused posts in the works in Bloggerland, so keep an eye out for them. I know I will!
