In our first show on dialogue, we looked at the importance of character agenda. This time we’ll examine at a structural issue: interweaving dialogue with narrative.

Using examples from Ian Rankin's A Question of Blood and advice from Dialogue: Techniques and Exercises for Crafting Effective Dialogue by Gloria Kempton, we'll test the proposition "When the story is moving too slowly, add dialogue to speed it up."
