Hello, As I continue to write, my weaknesses are becoming more and more easily identifiable. So, of course, if I want to improve the weaknesses must be tackled and conquered ! The next area I'm attempting to work on is dialogue. My dialogue is quite stilted. Ideally, I'd write snappy dialogue like Sorkin or Tarantino but I don't think they got it right away, or at least I hope they had to work at it because that means it's potentially attainable. What do the writers on this forum do to craft elite dialogue? I've tried writing down everything people say at my minimum wage service job and that's interesting, we'll see how it pays off. I've also tried speaking my dialogue out loud, and into a tape recorder but I find it awkward and emotionless. Maybe I should take acting classes.
