Writer’s Don’t Cry on Omnivoracious: Writing Killer Dialogue. If you’re only going to read one of these and you want to write, read this one. As much as my upbringing fights it, I’m going to admit I’m pretty fucking good at dialogue, and until Susan asked me all the right questions, my answer to “How do you write good dialogue?” was “You just do. I don’t know!”
