Friday Fun: Dialog Interview

I’ve mentioned Writing Excuses — a podcast hosted by successful professional fiction authors about the craft and profession of writing. If you’re not listening regularly, you should be. A few weeks back, they interviewed the epically talented John Scalzi  to talk about one of his best things: dialog.

I especially like the notion that dialog isn’t written the way people talk. If it was it would be filled with “ums” and all the stuff we actually say, instead of what we wish we had said when we get home.  I’d love your thoughts as well.

Enjoy, and thanks for listening.
