Project Description

401420e9

Open the Word file attached here, and turn those lousy dialogs into great ones!

Remember the things to consider:

  • The obviousness of the dialogs: when things are too explicit and too obvious.
  • The repetition: when both characters say the same thing. 
  • The “listener attitude”: when character number two offers no conflict or opposition.
  • The useless information: when one of the characters say something that has nothing to do with the present conflict.

Can't wait to see your amazing dialogs!! Have fun!! =D
