A bit about writing dialog. Short, but pithy and helpful..
Well, the video, short though it was, boils down to “Write tight dialogue,” and “If you can’t write dialogue, you’re kind of screwed,” which is a LOT faster to read than playing the video. What did the video provide that this synopsis doesn’t? Two talking heads, not very good looking ones, sitting in big imitation Naugahyde-substitute chairs on a hideous set. No charts, no diagrams, no bullet lists. No humor. No smiles. If we’re going to watch videos, I’d much rather see Anne talking to us with some visual aids. Especially if she smiles.

lol… what the code for a gentle chuckle? gc? anyway, thanks Jorge… I’m getting ready to do some more videos… I’ll smile, promise.
Thanks Anne, good video. I like them short and to the point like this. Happy Friendship Day!

I like ’em short too… although this one is just about as short as it can get and still be valuable.
