While this blog generally focuses on all types of artists, I confess this post is directed primarily to the writing community. I wanted to share the new writing video that just went up on my YouTube channel Teresa Funke. Because writing good dialogue is such a challenge for so many writers, I’ll actually be covering the topic in two videos. This is part one. And if you think understanding good dialogue applies only to fiction writers, please think again. When you quote sources in your non-fiction writing (including your books, blogs, and articles) you’d be well served to think back on my rules of dialogue to help you choose the most compelling quotes that will help “characterize” your sources and advance your arguments. You’ll find a dozen other writing videos on my channel as well. Enjoy!
