Open Book Blog Hop – 17th January

Stevie Turner

Welcome to this week’s blog hop. Today’s topic is:

What part of writing are you best at? Not compared to everyone else, but compared to you?

When I first started out writing novels back in 2013 I was unfamiliar with writing dialogue, and tended to leave it out if I could get away with it. This resulted in more ‘telling’ than ‘showing’, and further along the learning curve I realised that good dialogue is a must for any story.

Over the years I have tried to improve on writing dialogue, and enjoy it a whole lot more now that I’m not terrified of it. Words come easier with experience, and these days I try to make the characters come alive through speech.

I thought I’d leave you with some dialogue that I’ve written for my latest WIP, ‘Falling’, which might (or might not!) be ready for publication by the summer.
