Dialogue is one of three narrative tools to move the plot along and reveal character (in addition to description and action). Each character must speak with a unique voice-an amalgam of style, tone, intonation, and word choices. (And it must be formatted and punctuated properly.) You'll learn what you need to write dialogue that rings with truth.
