'Every utterance, however intangible, is at some level a statement of intent.' Great quote from John Yorke. #geaqa

@VanessaHarbour
@_AJAvery @klkettle #geaqa however I don't like too much dialogue without action beats so you have talking heads. It doesn't feel real then.

Okay time please ladies & gentlemen at the #GEAQA Bootcamp bar. Lockins occur at your own risk. It's been emotional. https://t.co/nmqmTMlvi3

great tips. My favourite is 'when a character asks a question, don’t answer it directly' #geaqa https://t.co/xtn8lmuSkP

@klkettle #geaqa Have heard: If narrative is more efficient than dialogue, use it. If dialogue does not advance character or plot, CUT IT

Can we talk about body language beats, do you use them? I find that they double up - show character and act as dialogue tags #geaqa

@authorontheedge I love it when done well. But when done badly, a book becomes cheesy and not believable *_* #geaqa

Kitty's final tip: READ SCREENPLAYS. Work out what works, y it works, how it conveys character & then how it cd be written as prose. #GEAQA

@nicki_thornton When we lie we often answer a question outright. When we tell the truth we have anecdote, opinion, feelings etc. #geaqa

@klkettle
@sueeves Yes. Attributing each sentence an action verb is great: X evicerates Y, where X is speaker and action verb is their intent. #GEAQA

Dialogue interaction is important, characters have different voices depending on who they are talking to and what they want from them #geaqa

@sueeves
@JillKWilson @klkettle @kminty @VanessaHarbour yes - dialogue that makes you want to know why someone said something - read on #geaqa

@sueeves
@klkettle @kminty @VanessaHarbour but don't explain anything - the beauty is in what you're not saying in dialogue #geaqa

@_AJAvery @klkettle Using dialogue to reveal plot was touched on at Arvon. Any tips? #GEAQA
