Hello my fellow enthusiasts!

 

First off I would like to point out that I searched for this topic and didn't find anything like it (but I could be wrong), if there's another topic like this one please lock this thread and point me in that direction, otherwise let's have a nice discussion about writing dialogue.

 

We all have our shortcomings and my biggest when it comes to creative writing is to write actual dialogue between characters. That is mainly why I am asking for your Do's & Don'ts, Tricks, Tips, Hints, etc. I also thought that this thread could serve as a source of knowledge for anyone else wondering about dialogue writing.

 

I would like to start with some more technical questions:

* How do you format the text when you write your dialogues?

* What grammar rules are there to follow when it comes to english when writing dialogue?

 

Now... to the big question:

What are your Do's and Don'ts when it comes to writing dialogue?

 

Edit: Yes I know that there is a do's and don'ts thread regarding writing for games, I am asking for a more specific discussion here.
