Just Keep Writing – Episode 3 – The Maurice Effect

This week, Marshall and Nick discuss the February challenge and usher in a new topic for the month of March: Dialogue. Maurice Broaddus joins Marshall and Nick this week to talk about to best use of time while working a day job and how effective dialogue can do for the reader. Maurice also talks about the in-depth research he did for his series “Knights of Breton Court.”

Topic of the Month: Dialogue

This Month’s Challenge: Take a scene from your current Work In Progress (WIP) and rewrite a scene with dialogue. When you rewrite this dialogue, do with it without dialogue tags. Look to make your characters distinguished from one another but there mannerisms and unique traits. Add dialogue tags later as necessary.
