Norwescon, April 4, 2015–He Said, She Said–Writing Dialogue

This panel wrapped up a very busy Saturday for me at Norwescon as I moderated a panel on writing effective and believable dialogue with fellow authors and panelists Tori Centanni, Cymbric Early-Smith, Carol Berg, Patrick Swenson and the inimitable Simon R. Green.  Among other topics we chatted about the differences between spoken and written dialogue, differentiating character voices, and the importance of reading and listening to dialogue, and I admit that I hadn’t expected the panel to be as funny (for me and, I think, the audience) and informative as it turned out to be.
