Dialogue

VARIATION

Give each major character a distinct voice, different enough, in rhythm, content, and word choice, to be instantly recognizable and distinguishable one from the other. Sharp contrast between the characters--one erudite, the other moronic--brings humor and fascination to the dialogue passages. Drawing extraordinary characters to begin with helps make more colorful the resulting dialogue, and the reverse is also true.
