How Using Dialogue Helped Me

While working on my book a few days ago, I came upon a surprising discovery as to writing about difficult topics. See, writing about being in a body cast for two years brings back many “not-to-positive” memories. Throughout the years I still think about things and negative emotions are brought up. It’s not fun. I wasn’t accomplishing anything as far as writing my book went. I was in a dilemma. Wanting to write a book and having to bring back memories of situations I didn’t want to talk about is not an easy task.

So, I started writing a chapter about going to outpatient visits and being pushed in a wheelchair. Suddenly, I remembered reading an article about using dialogue to get your point across. Dialogue is also supposed to be a way to keep your readers interested. I thought I’d give it a try.

Once I began writing, instead of using a passive voice (like I normally would do), I did insert some dialogue. What do you know? The story, and wording, came across as entertaining. There actually was humor in it. The characters came alive, the wording gave the impression that the reader could actually visualize the situation, and it was just fun to write this way. To say I was surprised, is an understatement.

This is why it is important to keep reading a variety of literature about writing. Learn from successful authors. Keep learning. Not only does it help one to keep informed, it also provides an self-enriching tool.

Hope this helps others.

  • If I ‘tell’ rather than ‘show’ my agent will get on me.

    Sometimes if a character is eccentric enough I can get away with them telling some, though.

    Thanks for your comment Dr. Tom Bibey. It’s very interesting to me. Thought provoking, if you will.
    🙂
