I gave Internal Dialogue a "4" only because I thought the last chapters were pared down so much to have little value. Instead, I would have preferred an advanced section, exploring creative or innovative uses of internal dialogue.
Also, I always buy physical books when shopping for writing references - ebooks are difficult to flip back and forth - but I *almost* regret buying the paperback version of this book. The plain jane formatting of the physical book actually detracts from the content.
But, overall, I think INTERNAL DIALOGUE is an excellent purchase and a useful guide, and I intend to buy other books in this series.
story/stories will need a character, either protagonist
or antagonist to have an Internal Dialogue.
I know I have, and many times my characters will need
to have more than a few of them.
As a matter of fact, I am using my Internal Dialogue as
I sit here and write this review. Yes, we ALL DO IT.
Now you have a guide to help and show you what
to do and how to add this new level to your writing.
Readers want real characters, not one dimensional,
answer only when asked, ones.
Another good tool in your Writers Toolbelt.
In Internal Dialogue, Kennedy provides more than a definition (and how many writers don't know the definition?). The book has regular examples, hard-core examples (sentence-by-sentence breakdowns), and unique ways to recognize internal dialogue. (My favorite is the holodeck.)
Exercises come in Quick-Check and Full Revision versions. You can find both in pdf form on her website.
I thought I knew what internal dialogue was, and I had a feeling I wasn't using it exactly right. I tried to read a couple other books, but they didn't really help that much. Then I found this one. Macy Kennedy writes in a clear, easy to understand style. She gives examples that make sense. She explains why you need good internal dialogue, what it does to move your story forward, and most important, HOW to write it.
