Thirty Word Thursday x 2

Dialogue isn’t just quotation. It’s grimaces, pauses, adjustments of…buttons, doodles on napkins…crossings of legs…People communicate…with their faces, their bodies, their timing…the objects around them. Makes this a full conversation. Not just the words part.Conversations are like icebergs…Most of their weight, their mass, their meanings are under the surface. Make your readers feel…what’s above and…below, and you’ll have a story.
