11. DIALOGUE

"I've found that good dialogue tells you not only what people are saying or how they're communicating but it tells you a great deal - by dialect and tone, content and circumstance - about the quality of the character." 
E. O. Wilson

I'm a voyeur. I say that with no embarrassment. If I could have a superpower, being invisible would be it, no question. I'm fascinated by human behavior; observing people and seeing how much story gets told without a lot of dialogue, and how much our brain fills in. Thomas Schlamme


93% of communication is nonverbal. Try to find ways for your characters to communicate without words, let the reader's mind fill in the blanks.

So, when to use dialogue?
