Dialogue 101

Punctuating and paragraphing dialogue is something that a lot of new writers (including students) struggle with. In my day job, I got tired of having to explain the same concepts over and over again, with no handy reference to point students who needed further revision to. So I created the videos below, that step you through exactly how dialogue works on a grammatical level, with detailed instructions about punctuation, paragraphing, beats and tags. Have fun!
