Defining character voice, writing for stress relief, and finding your own path . . .
We were thrilled to have Jeff Elkins, the Dialogue Doctor, join us on this week's show! It was an incredible interview, with SO MANY fantastic nuggets of wisdom. We talked about everything from coming from a non-writing background and how hard it was to admit we were writers, to developing character through their dialogue, and the fact that readers want something familiar with a twist.
Jeff is the author of 10 novels, an ongoing vella, and over 100 short stories. He trains authors in how to improve their dialogue through his podcast and coaching as the Dialogue Doctor.
Final Question: Have you ever used a plot frame or story map to outline as you go? Let us know in the comments to this week's post on Facebook @AuthorWheel!
