Inserting Dialogue


An update on my memoir:

At this point, writing dialogue is easy. I’ve already written the words. I just have to relinquish control of them. Some of my words can no longer remain my words but must be returned to their character, as I heard them spoken. Inserting more dialogue adds dimension and further brings my story to life. I strive to put my readers first. Fine tuning the voices within my text will allow my characters to become my readers’ characters. And that’s the whole point. My story belongs to others, and I need to gift it to others in ways that best serve them. I believe this minor modification will create value.

    I love writing dialogue. It really moves the story. Although my first book is a memoir, I’ve included recalled words exchanged. Many memoirs I’ve read do not include dialogue and I believe it’s a mistake.
