PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Writing Dialogue Handout covers both the punctuation of dialogue as well as effective use in story writing.

The story writing section includes the use of dialogue tags, how "said" becomes invisible to the reader, how to use character actions in place of dialogue tags, dropping dialogue tags with two speakers and more.

Useful handout for students writing dialogue.

As both English teacher and writer, I noticed that most novels use 'said' or character attribution rather than replacing 'said' with any number of increasingly curious and discordant not-quite-synonyms. My handout reflects this real-world application of dialogue rather than said-bookisms.

File is a 2 page PDF with explanations and examples.
