3 Overlooked But Super Effective Ways to Use Dialogue

Dialogue has a much bigger part in books than you realize.

Hey guys! It's Mary here from Wild Writing Dreams, and today I'm going to be stealing Ari's blog (don't worry, I didn't lock her up and force her to give me her blog for the day, she gave me permission...*evil laughter is heard from afar*) to share with you guys 3 awesome things most people don't know about dialogue, and how it really enhances your story!
