Are You Struggling to Learn How to Write Dialogue That Will Elevate Your Script Above the Rest?

You’ve been writing for years, read a million screenwriting books, taken courses on how to write dialogue and yet still find writing dialogue that ROCKS the single hardest aspect of screenwriting to get to grips with. Don’t worry, we know how you feel… 

Have you spent months or years:

» Being told by readers that your screenplay’s dialogue is too “on-the-nose,” “overwritten” or “lacking emotion.” And if that weren’t bad enough, apparently “every character sounds the same”

» Getting tired of reading the same old cliched advice about how to write dialogue: “add subtext,” “show don’t tell” and “make your dialogue pop off the page”

» Receiving great feedback or grades on your script’s plot or structure, but poor ones on its characters and their dialogue

» Knowing that the usual advice on how to write dialogue makes sense intellectually, but getting frustrated because actually implementing it in your script is another matter

Here are three of the biggest problems aspiring writers face when it comes to how to write dialogue: 

1. Most aspiring screenwriters think writing script dialogue means letting their characters talk… and talk… and talk… While characters in movies appear to do an awful lot of talking, they do much less than in the average spec screenplay. A big part of learning how to write dialogue is knowing how to shut them up.

2. Most aspiring screenwriters gain their knowledge on how to write dialogue passively. That is by reading blogs and books and listening to lectures and recorded seminars, etc. The problem here is that when it comes to actually writing dialogue in a script, it’s hard to apply the information learned as it’s all theoretical.

3. Most aspiring screenwriters don’t realize screenplay dialogue is best learned through doing rather than just reading or listening. This means utilizing theory hacks and practical exercises used by professional screenwriters in order to make sure each characters’ dialogue has a purpose other than just shooting the breeze.

This is where our book Master Screenplay Dialogue: The Ultimate Practical Guide On How To Write Dialogue Like the Pros comes into play. It solves these and many other issues that aspiring screenwriters face while learning how to write dialogue that will make their work stand out from the pack.

Master Screenplay Dialogue: Finally Learn How To Write Dialogue That “Pops Off the Page”

This is the first book on writing dialogue of its kind: full of theory hacks, practical exercises and resources that will get your script’s dialogue up where it needs to be.

Our core mission is to take the mystery out of screenwriting theory and the waffle out of screenwriting advice. We value things like practical exercises and clear, no BS language to help aspiring writers achieve their dream of turning pro and live the life they’re meant to live.

Now You Can Learn How To Write Dialogue Using Three Simple Steps

As writers who’ve gone from aspiring to professional, we know how hard learning how to write dialogue can be. A screenplay in which the reader can’t fully buy into what the characters are saying, just won’t work.

Our book Master Screenplay Dialogue, however, is a three-step plan to dialogue mastery.

1. Identify the reasons why your dialogue isn’t working. One of the biggest problems aspiring screenwriters face is being able to recognize poorly written dialogue in their own work. It can be hard to step back and look at the dialogue objectively when you’re deep in the story, and so in the book, we show you some practical methods you can use to do just that.

2. Eliminate the main problems holding your dialogue back. We break down the three most common mistakes aspiring screenwriters make when it comes to writing dialogue: 1. It’s too on-the-nose, 2. There’s too much of it, 3. All the characters sound the same and show you how to identify and combat each one.

3. Improve your dialogue with a new weekly writing practice. Not only will the theory hacks and practical exercises help you identify and eliminate bad dialogue, they’ll also provide a solid game plan on how to write interesting, effective dialogue going forward. Implement these exercises into your weekly writing routine and learn how to write dialogue like the pros.

Q2. Just what are these “practical exercises” that pro writers use? You’ll have to buy the book to find out, but they are a vital part of the process in learning how to write dialogue. We’re big advocates at Script Reader Pro of learning by doing rather than just reading various theories.

Q3. But aren’t the “theory hacks” just theories? Yes, but they’re also hacks! Rather than the dry, slightly waffling theories you’ll find in books such as Story by Robert McKee, we break down the concept of how to write dialogue into easily digestible chunks and show you how to reframe your approach in a clear and practical way.

Q4. Can I get a refund if I don’t like the book? Absolutely. If you feel you already know everything we have to say, or it isn’t for you, we’ll give you a no-questions-asked full refund.
