Hi everyone, Writing dialogue is really starting to get to me! The problem is that I can't find a particular voice for each of my characters. I was reading about this in a writing book, and learnt that your book can be judged greatly on the dialogue. It can be judged by taking away any beats or narrative amidst the dialogue and just read alone; so basically like a script. From this you can tell whether your characters gan be distinguished by their dialogue. Well, I fail. I fail because I can't come up with different individual voices. Let me talk about the voices I am trying to develop: (S) 1st character - Speaks better than the rest and is a little eccentric (K) 2nd character - Speaks your average english (A) 3rd character - Speaks a little "girlyish" (C) 4th character - Speaks a lot of "girly" slang (J) 5th character - Speaks a lot of "guyish" slang (A) 6th character - Is sarcastic and not bothered most the time. (A) 7th character - Is simply nice. I have the basics of how to develop their dialogue (the above, lol), but it's hard for me to go further, i.e. actually writing the dialogue... Any advice would really help!
