HOW TO KILL YOUR NOVEL WITH CONVERSATION:
Die-alogue is the best way to kill your novel. What is die-alouge? It’s forcing your characters to have real conversations just because the conversation is…real. There’s little that’s real about compelling dialogue. It’s a facade. It’s words that are strung together to mimic true speech, but somewhere within, the dialogue is missing elements that make it a genuine conversation. The small talk isn’t so small anymore. Each word has a direction and a meaning.
