    In the clip below Brand Sanderson, author of the Mistborn series and known for his work on finishing 'The Wheel of Time', gives some useful insights into dialogue mechanics and how some simple formatting tricks can make your dialogue flow a lot better.

    Note: there are a lot of his lectures freely available online (on youtube), every one of which is well worth watching!

    There are 78 videos in the collection. The elements covered are applicable to all genre of fiction but are presented in the context of a class on SF/F.

    I've watched all Sanderson's lessons posted on YT and for an aspiring writer like me, this is an excellent free resource for some basic but important learning about writing fiction. It also made me think a lot about my current project and the changes it needs.
