Why talk about dialogue in a podcast about online writing? Dialogue builds tension and allows you to show instead of tell. And so much more.
People love to read dialogue.
We gravitate to the words on the page that are surrounded by quotation marks — the speech marks — because we know that two humans are going to interact … and we’re drawn to the drama.
As Alice said in Alice in Wonderland, “What is the use of a book without pictures or conversations?”
The same holds true for online copy. We want our pictures. We want our conversations.
