I stumbled upon William Noble’s gem of a book at a library book sale a few years ago, and finally picked it up this last week. I love to write dialogue and feel comfortable doing so, but I can always use some help. Noble clearly discusses how dialogue can be used to build tension, develop characters, and move the plot forward. He also covers all the common pitfalls that every writer falls into at some point. The book was published in 1987 so you may not be able to find it in your local bookstore but keep your eyes open at your local used book sale.
