do you ever feel like you’re just sort of 

there

like all your friends go out and do things and have fun and do stupid things with their best friends and instead of doing all that you’re just sort of this mildly entertaining thing that people take an interest in once in a while but they wouldn’t really care if it was gone

like you just sort of exist but you don’t really mean anything

People who have a superiority complex based on their enjoyment of vintage music or books are some of the most annoying people in the world and if I ever hear you ridiculing someone just because they may not enjoy listening to the beatles whilst reading to kill a mockingbird and sipping a cup of hibiscus green tea i will literally come to your house and staple your nipples to your elbows

Hi Max! So I've been having some real writers block as of late. I used to write constantly, as in up to 4am on a school night constant, but now I can't even get out a paragraph. It's gotten really frustrating because whenever I sit down and try to make myself write I can never think of anything or be happy with what I've written. And for when this creative dry spell passes do you have any tips for writing dialogue properly on the grammatical side? Thanks and your blog is a gift from above😘

Hello there~ ♥︎

Well, I have covered the issue of writer’s block quite a few times already. I would recommend you take a look at my (growing) collection of masterposts on writing advice. I promise you that you will overcome writer’s block, I know you will :D

Now, if you don’t mind. I’m going to take your second question as a great chance to talk about the grammatical side of dialogue. Before we go any further, though, I need to clarify that the following are not ‘rules,’ they are ‘tips.’ Writers disagree on a lot. What you will find below are the way I do things. I recommend you look around, especially in your favorite books, and see how other people did it. Take what you like, leave what you don’t, and create your ‘style’ c;

Again, these tips are not gospel. They are just the way I keep my dialogue trim & clean. I have them formatted as rules because in my mind they’re kind of unbreakable :p

#1. Dialogue should be encapsulated in double quotation marks. Not single quotation marks, for these are reserved for contractions and titled pronouns within dialogue.

Do not write:

'I asked Liam and he said Zain”s favorite musical was “Rent.”'

Do write:

"I asked Liam and he said Zain’s favorite musical was ‘Rent.’"

#2. New speaker, new paragraph. Whenever someone starts speaking, you must begin their dialogue in a new paragraph. You are asking to confuse your reader if you don’t show a change in formatting between speakers.

Do not write:

"Liam you’re such a butt," Zain said. "Well, you’re a butt too," Liam replied.

Do write:

"Liam you’re such a butt," Zain said.

"Well, you’re a butt too," Liam replied.

#3. If the dialogue is followed by a tag (X said) then the period at the end of the dialogue should be substituted with a comma, as these are part of the same sentence/thought.

Do not write:

"Lucian is such a butt I want to kill him." Justine said.

Do write:

"Lucian is such a butt I want to kill him," Justine said.

#4. Henceforth, if the dialogue tag is in between a long piece of dialogue (or same thought) the period at the end should be substituted with a comma, as it is all part of the same sentence. Also make sure to keep an eye for capitalization.

Do not Write:

"Lucian is such a butt I want to kill him," Justine said. "But that would just do him a favor."

Do write:

"Lucian is such a butt I want to kill him," Justine said, "but that would just do him a favor."

NOTE: Keep in mind that both of the lines above are grammatically correct. The issue is that the first portrays a pause in the dialogue and two thoughts, while the second one portrays a single uninterrupted thought.

#5. Not grammar-related, but I feel this is something we need to talk about. Do not fill dialogue tags with adverbs or adverbial phrases just for the sake of not writing ‘said,’ especially if you do not truly mean what they express. Said is king in dialogue tags because it’s practically invisible. The reader gets what you try to say and the story is not interrupted. Aside from that, using ‘said’ reserves more impactful words (such as ‘shouted’ or ‘whispered’) to situations where they could be more effective.

Do not write:

Liam… you have the prettiest blue eyes,” Zain whistled romantically.

There are a MILLION OTHER MORE EFFECTIVE WAYS to express this without resorting to adverbs or adverbial phrases. Unless you truly mean it when a character ‘whistles’ at another, you would do better to go into more detail than just TELL us he did so ‘romantically.’ I consider adverbs to be the most lazy writing there is. You have told the reader nothing. You literally just wrote a word, shrugged your shoulders, and said: “Imagine this character doing this in a romantic fashion, because apparently you should know it but I can’t be bothered to show you what you should be imagining.”

Again. Do not write:

Liam… you have the prettiest blue eyes,” Zain whistled romantically.

Do write:

"Liam… you have the prettiest blue eyes," Zain said.

Or, write:

"Liam… you have the prettiest blue eyes," Zain whispered.

Or, even better, write:

"Liam…" Zain said, cupping his lover’s face with both hands, "you have the prettiest blue eyes."

Play around with dialogue. Please. Write anything but:

Liam… you have the prettiest blue eyes,” Zain whistled romantically.

That should be pretty good for now c; I hope I didn’t get too preachy at the end. Again, these are just the way I do things. I have met writer’s who are okay with not splitting dialogue (and I just don’t read their books because seriously who is talking now? I sure don’t know because you DIDN’T THINK TO SPLIT THE PARAGRAPHS). But hey, you can write however you like. No biggie here c;

I hope this helps! If you have any more questions make sure to send them my way~ ♥︎

Soon!

October! It’s coming up really soon. My excitement not only comes from the fact that it’s now autumn but because the approaching Halloween holiday means even more inspiration for NaNo. I’m still not finished with the outline but I do have a few things picked out and a general direction/ending that I want to take the book. It should be an interesting ride!

Keep an eye out for previews and teasers…

But seriously if your partner won’t let you do something (eg, hang out with your friends)? That’s actually a GIANT RED FLAG for an abusive relationship, please get help or get out of there.
