What's 'realistic' dialogue? Does it have to resemble everyday speech? Not necessarily, imo. Stories set in alternate worlds can have invented phrases, expressions and slang. I think dialogue should be realistic *in the context* of that story's world. #amwriting #WritingCommunityRyan Dowes @RyanDowes • 18 Jan 21:45 GMT
I printed my WIP to go through it with a highlighter and pen and can't believe how many edits I've made in two pages. It's like looking at it with different eyes.

Agent submission question for anyone who can help! When agents say 'send 3 chapters or roughly 50 pages' does it mean you should send 50 pages if your 3 chapters are shorter than 50 pages? Or is it just a guide for people without chapters? #amwriting #askagentSophie Flynn @sophielflynn • 18 Jan 09:19 GMT
My New Year's resolution was to be kinder to myself. So today, I'm giving myself a day off. I'll bake bread, go for a long dog walk, maybe watch a film. I might even walk to the pub to write. No pressure, no must dos.
