Tuesday Choice Words

Summer has receded into a blanket of cloud and rain. This kind of weather always makes me look inwards, which is handy when you're a writer. Less distractions, more imaginative delving, and all day (until school run) to write.

Dialogue can be a stumbling block for most writers - finding the right voice for your character, making every conversation count - so this week's link is especially useful, Write great dialogue scenes in 7 steps from Nail Your Novel.


  1. Great link! Thank you. Have you read or used either of her books before? I've been thinking of picking up her first book, and now her new one looks like it might be very helpful. I must say I like your approach of one reconneded link per week. There's so much out there on the web that it is virtually (!) impossible to keep up, so much so that it makes more sense to stop trying and simply focus on what is the best. Less pressure and stress for your readers too - so many worthwhile links to follow takes up a lot of precious writing time. How do you manage your surfing habit? Edith, from a rainy landscape in Wicklow.Where's the sun gone?

    1. I haven't read any of her books, Edith, but her blog is incredibly useful. I tend to dip into articles on new topics and see if they're worth invesigating. As you say, there's so much out there.

      My children's sports day was supposed to be today but it's been cancelled because of the rain. And for the first time in over a week, I'm cold sitting in the house.

  2. Ooh, great link. I love dialogue.
