Write Great Fiction - Dialogue, by Gloria Kempton
If, like me, you are a novice writer and are looking to expand your knowledge and skills in a very competitive market, Write Great Fiction - Dialogue is a "must have" for your library. Not only does Gloria Kempton thoroughly cover the ins-and-outs of writing effective dialog, but she also offers tips and ideas that lead to other valuable resources writers should have in their arsenal of knowledge. For instance, I found a system of developing characters that she mentions within the book to be most useful and now employ it myself. As a writer and instructor in the art of dialog, Gloria Kempton covers everything we need to know in order to write effective dialog for today's market.

Make your characters come alive
Dialogue not only moves a story forward, it can help a reader get into the story and identify with your characters. A novel without dialogue is hard to read, but poorly written dialogue can turn a reader off. This little book has a wealth of tips and guides on creating realistic dialogue that helps identify your characters and keep a story flowing. A must read for anyone who wants to write good fiction.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Entertaining and educational
Gloria Kempton's book has helped me with my writing more than any other book I've read. The text centers on dialogue, but has helped me with every aspect of my writing. No only is it the most helpful book on writing that I have ever read, but it is thoroughly entertaining. At time I found myself laughing aloud or sharing excerpts with others. Anyone would enjoy this book and be helped by it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
