How to Show Deception in Dialogue

Dialogue is one of those things you either just “get” or have to “work” at. But either way, both types of writers still need to challenge the reader and themselves. Just because your words flow well and sound realistic, doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve mastered all there is to know about the art of writing dialogue.

I stumbled upon this little gem over at One Stop for Writers — a great resource for writers at any stage of their development. Whether you struggle with writing dialogue or are a “natural”, I highly suggest you take a look at the tips below. Deception is a natural instinct for humans and to be able to weave it believably into your dialogue is a skill worth practicing 🙂

Happy Writing!
