TSS188: Making the Most of your Dialogue – A Hack the Craft Episode (Part 2 of 5)

This week’s episode marks the beginning of a four-part deep dive where Taylor works through a 2,000-word scene that Steve wrote for an upcoming book. This started out as something that would focus on Dialogue, but as you hear (and see if you check out the video on Patreon) her work goes well beyond just dialogue and into several story elements including character depth, motivation, and consistency, and defining the purpose of the scene. The full video will be posted as soon as it’s been produced, but this is a long one, so it may not come until later in the week. Thanks so much for joining us again this week!
