Dialogue makes your writing seem ‘real’ and more appealing to your reader.
Types of Dialogue
Normal dialogue which involves response from other characters:
Example: “Baseball is boring.” Scully commented after noticing Mulder reading an article about baseball. “Just like you.” “You just do not know how to appreciate it. Just looking at the scores of the baseball games calm me down.” Mulder rebutted.
Interior dialogue is what a character is thinking:
“ Oh dear that’s not good” he thought
Dramatic dialogue is a character thinking out loud :without response from other characters.
“ "Not so brave without your shotguns, eh? Hiding under you mama's bed sheets.“
