A great source of how to to punctuate dialogue is from theeditorsblog.net They are calm and lovely and explain things really well. But if you're a little weird, you're in the right place. Let's get started for this two-part podcast that we'll finish next week. And for a reminder: A dialogue tag is just the bits like "they said," "she whispered," "he yelled." Single line of dialogue, no dialogue tag. You put the whole sentence inside those quotation marks. “Shaunie is a cutie face.” Quotation Marks + Capitalized First Word + Period/Question Mark/Exclamation Point+ End Quote Single line with dialogue tag (attribution) coming after it. This time you put the dialogue inside the quotation marks and also a COMMA of MAGIC right before the last quotation marks. Then after the dialogue tag you put a period like this: “Shaunie is a cutie face,” she said. Why is this? It's pretty simple, the whole thing is a sentence, but it's a sentence in two parts. Part one is the stuff someone is saying aloud. Part two is telling the reader who is saying it. It's all one big thing and that's why you don't have a period inside the last quotation marks before the dialogue tag. Whoa. Mind blow, right? And that's the same reason we don't capitalize SHE in the dialogue tag of SHE SAID. Quotation Marks + Capitalized First Word + Comma + End Quote + Lowercase First Word in the Dialogue Tag + Period. We're going to do just one more and continue on next week. Single line, but you're putting the dialogue tag first So, it's totally the same concept. It's all one sentence, but this time the capitalization gets a bit wonky. You want to capitalize the first spoken word inside the first quotation marks and put a COMMA OF MAGIC right before it to separate the spoken words from the tag. Ready? She said, “Shaunie, you are such a cutie-cutie face, my little coco-puff.” So, you have a capitalized SHE at the beginning of the sentence, a comma at the end of the tag, quotation marks, then a capitalized first word. Tag + Comma + Quotation marks + Ending punctuation (period, exclamation point, question mark) + End Quotation marks. WRITING TIP OF THE POD Know your dialogue punctuation because it gets super confusing if you don't. DOG TIP FOR LIFE When you know the rules, when you know how to communicate your wants, you should be able to get your people to understand you AND you can understand your people. SHOUT OUT!

DO NOT HISS “I LOVE YOU” – How to deal with dialogue tags

Dogs Are Smarter Than People: Writing Life, Marriage and Motivation

These next few podcasts, we thought we should get all nitty-gritty with some quick grammar tips or style tips for people writing fiction. It can help you nonfiction writers, too, we swear. When you're writing dialogue (people talking to each other), you're going to want to follow these punctuation rules. Use quotes. Have the dialogue tag (who the speaker is, the he said/she asked) in the actual same paragraph as the dialogue. Punctuate it all correctly. (That's a lot of knowledge right there.) But here's the big one: Don't go screwing around with those dialogue tags, also known as speaker tags. You want to keep it simple when it's a dialogue tag. “Said” and “asked” are your besties here. If you do anything else? You look like a crappy writer who is trying too hard and the tag becomes more attention-grabbing than the very important words your character said. “I love you,” she said reads a lot differently than “I love you,” she murmured and bellowed and hissed. That can be your intention, but you don't want to keep doing it all the time. Here look at it. “I love you,” she murmured. “I love you,” he cat-called. “I know,” she bellowed. He screamed, “Of course you do.” “And what do you mean by that?” she enthused. So, the other big thing to remember is this: You can't sigh out or smile out words, so don't use them for speaker tags. You can use them for dialogue beats, but that means you have to punctuate them differently. “I love you,” she said. – Requires a comma after the word ‘you,' and a lower-case S for ‘she.' “I love you.” She sighed. - Requires a period after the word ‘you,' and an upper-case S for ‘she.' Oh, and romance and horror writers, we all love to make our characters hiss especially when our lovers are shapeshifters, but you can't hiss out a bunch of words if there are no s-sounds. WRITING TIPS OF THE POD Make sure your reader knows who is speaking by putting the dialogue tag next to the dialogue. DOG TIP FOR LIFE Only call attention to the things you want to call attention to.

Everyone tells you to raise the stakes in your writing. And that's a lovely, easy thing to say when you are the editor and not the writer. But what does it actually mean? You hear this and think, “Yeah. Yeah. High stakes equal important. Cool. Cool.” But then you start thinking about dinner or something. But it's important. Carrie's first breakout novel was NEED and it was a series about pixies trying to cause an apocalypse. Those are high stakes, right? Agent Donald Maas says it pretty well, “High stakes yield high success.” He suggests knowing exactly where the stakes increase. What page does this happen? Can those stakes be higher? Do those stakes make it harder for your main character to get what he/she/they want to get? A really, beautiful way he puts this stakes question out there is by asking authors to ask themselves, “So what?” What's the so what question? It's this: IF YOUR MAIN CHARACTER DOESN'T GET THEIR GOAL THEN SO WHAT? Does it matter? How much does it matter? And that brings me to what I think of I think is Maas's most important point about stakes: The stakes in your story don't matter unless you've built in human worth about your main character. If your character's life doesn't matter to the reader, than the stakes don't matter, and this is even true for life-and-death stakes.Maas HUMAN WORTH So, that brings us to the question of what is human worth and how do you make it happen in your story. That's obviously a big cultural question, right? And this isn't meant to be about philosophy, but about writing, and yes it's all intertwined. You have to ask questions about your character. Who is she? Why do we need to care about her? What are the stakes that make it necessary for us to care that she gets her goal. There needs to be an extra burst of value in why us readers care about your character. Are they super moral? Are their morals and ethics at risk? High human worth tends to focus on certain qualities of behavior such as: Honesty Bravery Kindness Empathy Love Goodness Truth Honor Friendship So many books that are break-out books and movies are about friendships. Think about Harry Potter and Tolkein and Star Wars and even Marvel movies. There is a link that happens between the characters that show their worth through their caring for others. This isn't just true for fantasy. But even in the specificity of contemporary realistic novels. In realistic novels, we don't necessarily deal with those blatant and beautiful archetypes that happen in science fiction and fantasy, but if there is anything that the Covid-19 pandemic teaches us is that there can be the heroic in the mundane. Hand washing and mask wearing can be an act of kindness and of power. But no matter how big our landscape needs to be then we have to make sure that our characters worth snags our reader into caring. Some characters are unsympathetic and there is a tiny bit of redeemabilitiy in them. They have to somehow be likable. There's got to be an element about them to latch onto. This varies in different cultures, but in ours currently, we can deal with a jerk of a character if they are funny or brave or super smart or charismatic. I mean, seriously, think about some popular celebrities that we latch onto. Charisma is a big deal thing and it lets you get a way with a lot. Every reader has a slightly different threshold for the poopy behaviour they'll put up with from a character. WRITING TIP OF THE POD Make your characters matter. Make them redeemable. Make them have human worth. DOG TIP FOR LIFE Choose the people who see your good, not just your bad. SHOUT OUT!

Carrie's teaching a class at the Writing Barn for the next six weeks about . . . character! That means we're talking a lot about character in our house. Of course, we're also being characters because being characters is more fun than talking about them. It's like the difference between telling in your writing and showing. And in the writing world one of the big annoying things writers hear about their characters is that the character is “too static, man.” What's it mean to be too static? It means that the character isn't growing or changing. The opposite of a static character is a dynamic character. That's a character that grows and evolves. In most stories (but not all) our protagonists grow and change and are dynamic dynamos. They are characters we root for or follow, right? The evil miser who hates Christmas becomes a generous benefactor. A little boy wizard who hides under the stairs becomes a wizard leader in the fight against darkness. But if you think about the James Patterson series's protagonists, most of them are like Sherlock Holmes and they don't really grow and change. They are pretty consistent a lot of times. And then there is the bad guy/antagonist. Some editors will want your bad guy to grow and be dynamic too, but a lot of times those baddies and a lot of your side/secondary characters will be pretty consistent and static. Think Hannibal Lecter. Think Gaston in Disney's Beauty and the Beast. What can you use static characters for? To be foils to the main character. To make fun of tropes and stereotypes or shallow people in society. To get pulled along in the main character's fun. To sometimes have contradictory goals that create obstructions for that main dynamic character's quest. WRITING TIP OF THE POD There is a place for dynamic and static characters in stories, but you know, you should know what the words mean. DOG TIP FOR LIFE Don't be static, dude. Grow. Become.

Dogs Are Smarter Than People: Writing Life, Marriage and Motivation

You're writing a book. And that book has to start somewhere. Where it starts? That's called the opening scene and this little baby has a lot of work that it has to do. It's like the first moments of a blind date, but instead of a blind date between two people, it's a blind date between the book and the reader. Will they like each other? Will they want to spend time together? Are they meant for each other? Only … it's really will the reader like the book. Nobody cares if the book likes the reader. The reader has all the power. According to Les Edgerton, who wrote the craft book, HOOKED, that opener has ten important components to grab that reader's attention and make them want to chill on the couch with your book. Those are: The Inciting Incident – Les believes that this needs to happen in the first scene. Other people do not agree with this. The Story-Worthy Problem – That incident makes a problem that is going to propel the plot of the whole damn book. The Initial Shallow Problem – This problem happens because of the inciting incident and makes the protagonist do something (take action), but it's not the real problem of the story. The Set-Up – Kind of makes the reader know what's going to happen next and also helps the reader know what the heck is going on. Backstory – You do not want a lot of this, which is the events that have happened before the story starts. Opening Lines – Because duh. The story has to start, but you want them to be snazzy and make an impression. Language – Because again, duh. Books are made of words. The words you choose and how you group them together make an impression. Setting – Because the story has to take place somewhere. Let the reader have a sense of the physical space, the time, the culture. Foreshadowing – This is the magic, my friends, because this is part of the hook that keeps the reader with you—the knowledge and hint that something is coming up next. And that opening scene? It has goals: You have to hook the reader.You have to have a story-worthy problem.You have to let the reader know what kind of story this is.And tease that ending out a tiny bit. WRITING TIP OF THE POD That beginning of your story is super important. Spend some time on it. DOG TIP FOR LIFE Set the scene. Establish your goals. Show them your character and do it right away. SHOUT OUT! The music we've clipped and shortened in this podcast is awesome and is made available through the Creative Commons License. Here's a link to that and the artist's website. Who is this artist and what is this song? It's “Summer Spliff” by Broke For Free.

Man, That's a Beautiful Mullet and How To Pace Your Novel

Just like hanging out with a friend, or listening to an instructor drone on and on about the beauty of a mullet, the keys to controlling your novel's pacing are language and conflict and scene sequence and stakes. We're going to talk about those today. What's pacing? It's how fast or slow the story goes for the reader. LANGUAGE IS A BIG WAY TO IMPACT PACE Let's start with word choice. The words you choose can speed up the reader or slow them down. The way the words are grouped on the page? Same thing. Dialogue. Short paragraphs. Short sentences. Action. Those four things speed things up. And these things below? They slow that story down. Descriptive passages. Long paragraphs. Long sentences. Abstract language. A lot of talk about feelings. Flashbacks. Information dumps. Special Help: If all your sentences are the same length and are constantly parallel in construction, you lull the reader to sleep. No sleeping readers, okay? You fall asleep, you run the risk of getting a mullet. CONFLICT AND STAKES IS ANOTHER WAY TO IMPACT PACING In the scenes you choose, there needs to be some stakes and some conflict. Stakes happen when your reader cares about the character and is worried about what might happen to them if they don't reach their goals. In every scene that stays in your book, there needs to be a stake and a goal. You can't just have your character chilling with her bestie if there's no point in that chillin. You need obstacles and tension and the reader needs to think, “Yikes! What happens if they fail?” It's really one of the biggest things about pacing. Because not having conflict and stakes and tension? It makes the reader stop reading. SCENE SEQUENCE ALSO IMPACTS We couldn't fit ALL the notes here thanks to character limits so for the rest, check out my blog here. WRITING TIP OF THE POD Control your pacing; control your story. DOG TIP FOR LIFE Humans are always go-go-go. Life is too fast paced. Slow your roll so you can enjoy your belly rubs, walks, and treats.

Because not having conflict and stakes and tension? It makes the reader stop reading. Scene Sequence Also Impacts Pace And here it is. The big one. In your story, just like in your life, there will be action moments and turning points and then moments where you think about those big action moments. Dwight Swain called these moments in a book scenes (the action moments) and sequels (the reflective moments). Or as I like to call them, LOUD scenes and QUIET scenes. And you want these scenes to be balanced so that the reader doesn't get bored or the opposite, scream “THIS IS TOO MUCH!!! AH! ANXIETY!” Randy Ingermanson of the Snowflake method gives three components to each: Active Loud Scene GoalConflictDisaster Quieter Sequel Scene ReactionDilemmaDecision Pretty cool, right? So, how do you put all this together? You want to look at the structure of your story and break it down. Make scenes and chapter cards or just a list.Look at where the story ramps up and slows down.Use those sentences and paragraphs and chapters and scene lengths to manipulate that pace.Think about if your characters are too introspective.Think about if your writing lacks any detail or does it have too much? Do you wax poetic about the mullet on your main character for 12 pages? Think about each of your scenes. Do they show character or plot development? Are there obstacles going on? Does your main character want something in the scene?Have people read it and ask if the story felt rushed or too slow and where?Remember we need slow paced scenes, too! Not just fast ones! WRITING TIP OF THE POD Control your pacing; control your story. DOG TIP FOR LIFE Humans are always go-go-go. Life is too fast paced.

Step One: Name it. This does not have to be its forever name, just a way for you to find the computer file. It can be THE EVIL NOVEL THAT HAS NO NAME RIGHT NOW. That's fine. Step Two: Find a hero. Name them. Put them in a jam or a bad place. Maybe they suck at making commitments? Maybe they need a promotion. Maybe they live under the stairs. Give them a problem. Step Three: Think about what has to occur in order for them to ovary up enough to try to deal with that problem. Step Four: Now decide what is going to change once that hero gets proactive and tries to deal with that problem or once they take action. Step Five: Are things different for our little hero now? How? Step Six Okay. Something else needs to happen so that the story takes a turn or a veer to the right or left. What makes it go in another direction? Step Seven Make things worse for our poor hero. How are they worse? Step Eight Okay. If this is a positive change arc where the hero ends up in a better place, what is it that inspires them to make a big effort and go for that win? Step Nine What is the big win (positive change arc) or the big loss (negative change arc) Boom! There you go, how to figure out your novel's basic structure in nine easy steps? Do you feel heroic, writer? You should. Writing Tip of the Pod It's okay to make it simple when it comes to story structure. It really is.

A lot of writers will worry that their stories seem flat. There's a reason that they are worrying about that and it's one of the core elements of good writing. Ready? You want to vary your sentence structure. Take a bit of writing that you've done that feels flat—or maybe even one that doesn't. Count the words in your sentences for two or three paragraphs. Are they all five words? Twelve? Twenty-seven? That robotic sameness in sentence length is one of the main reasons that writing can feel flat. It's like those ancient Dick and Jane books. See Dick run. See Jane skip. See Dick wave. The other big bugger is when all of your sentences are simple and declarative. I walk to the forest. The trees are gracious, tall. I inhale the pine scent. There is actually a whole, entire world of different sentence styles that writers can use and when you use them? That's when you make your writing shiny and sexy and all the good things. The names for these structures are pretty boring, honestly, but we'll try to look beyond that, right? Simple – You have one main clause. Carrie is the best wife. Compound – You have more than one independent clause. You probably use a conjunction. Carrie wants to get another dog, but Shaun keeps saying no. Complex – Oh, the sentence that probably has to pay for a therapist or is reading Foucault obviously in the park. This sentence has an independent clause and a subordinate clause. It'st the BDSM of sentences. When hell freezes over, we will allegedly get another dog. Compound-Complex – It sounds like a place with a cult, right? But it's just a sentence with at least two independent clauses and one subordinate clause. Carrie really needs a new dog to love, so Shaun said that they would get one when hell freezes over, so Carrie immediately got some dry ice and sent some down to Lucifer. Refresher moments: What's a clause? A bunch of words chilling out together and one of those words in the group is a verb and another is a noun. Fancy people call the verb, the predicate, but we aren't fancy here. What's an independent clause? It is a bunch of words that has a subject and a predicate. It is grammatically complete all by itself and doesn't need anyone. Not any other words to stand alone! Darn it. What's a subordinate or dependent clause? A bunch of words that needs other words to be a sentence. This poor beautiful baby cannot stand alone and be complete, kind of like a protagonist in a Hallmark romance. WRITING TIP OF THE POD Vary your sentence structures and don't be flat. DOG TIP FOR LIFE Variety is good. Don't eat the same Milkbones all the time. Mix it up. Be fluffy.

Authors, let's just admit it. We're insecure. Writing is communication and we want to make sure that our readers are getting what we're putting down (Translation: Understanding what we're saying). SO, WHAT DO WE DO? We over-explain. And that over-explaining slows down our pacing and makes our reader not want to read anymore. THERE ARE LOTS OF BIGGER WAYS OF OVEREXPLAINING. And what is overexplaining? It's when you just keep adding things on to make your reader get what you're saying. Like this: Shaun punched the wall. He was so angry he could spit. His hands clenched into tight fists. “What kind of butthead are you?” he roared. So, all four of those sentences tell us the same thing. Shaun is angry. You can cut down that to one or two and the reader is still going to get it. Trust the reader's brains. Trust yourself. HERE'S A REWRITE. Shaun punched the wall. “What kind of butthead are you?” But it's not just in long passages that us writer people do this. We do it in short bits too. HERE ARE SOME BIG ONES. She shrugged her shoulders. (She shrugged) He nodded his head in agreement. (He nodded) or (He agreed) They shook their head no. (They shook their head) He looked at his watch to check the time.

Info dumps WHEN YOU DO THIS OVER-EXPLAINING THING YOU: Slow down the pace Ruin the subtext. Break my heart. Make the scenes dull. Over-explaining takes out the pizzazz.

Alligator Romance with Darth Gator and the grammar behind the words in to vs into

So, now that we're into the helpful part of the podcast and no longer talking about women in love with the alligators that attacked them or dogs and cats breaking records together, we thought we'd take a quick look at a big grammar mistake. And that's when INTO is one word or two. IS IT . . . Dude, I am so into you. OR IS IT . . . Dude, I am so in to you. Here's how it works. INTO all as one word is a preposition, which means it's showing MOVEMENT of one thing to another thing. But IN TO (two words) has two grammatical bits going on right there. The IN is an adverb and the TO is the preposition. And they aren't like snuggled up in bed like a cohabitating couple, they just tend to show up in the sentence next to each other. Here are some examples: INTO AS ONE WORD: Baby, I made it into the office today, but only just barely because… cough… you know. Lordie, look what Santa put into your stocking. That alligator went into that woman's head, man, like took total control. INTO usually tells you WHERE something is happening. IN TO AS TWO WORDS Look, I am standing in to make a statement to our senator. Santa came in to say a hearty hello. The dog and cat rode in to break that record on that damn scooter. IN TO usually can be substituted with IN ORDER TO. Easy, right? Consider yourself grammatical. WRITING TIP OF THE POD Two words are different than one. DOG TIP FOR LIFE Sometimes taking chances pays off (like when you jump on a scooter with a cat) and sometimes it doesn't (like when you bite your handler's hand). Choose your risks wisely. And that goes for copyediting too. Unless you're super sure you know all the grammar, don't copyedit your own story. SHOUT OUT! The music we've clipped and shortened in this podcast is awesome and is made available through the Creative Commons License. Here's a link to that and the artist's website. Who is this artist and what is this song? It's “Summer Spliff” by Broke For Free.

Carrie reads a lot of novels in progress and helps writers make those novels better and one of the big things that happen that keep a book from being super star status is an unsatisfying ending. Yes. Yes, that is about books, not sex, Shaun. But some of the same principles apply to both. You want your ending to be satisfying even if it's an unhappy ending. So, how do you make your ending satisfying? Ah, just like the copulation, it's all about fulfilling your promises to the reader in the lead-up to that ending, right? Your reader has been hanging out with you for 50,000 words at least (usually) and that means that you owe them what you've promised them--a complete story with a damn fine ending. Here are the things to know: The character at the end of the book should have changed enough to react to the events in a way that they wouldn't have reacted on page 10. Most books that are satisfying have a main character that changes. They evolve (positive change arc) or devolve (negative change arc). Their situation is different at the end of the book and you, the author, want to recognize that and show us readers -- WOW! Look at how Sparty the Dog is so much stronger now. He's dealing with that squirrel in a way he never would have on page 10. All the events that have happened prior to the climax and the ending have made Sparty the dog that's able to handle his arch nemesis like a boss. There needs to be emotional growth (or regression) in your main character at the end of this story. And this growth at the ending has to be shown in the gorgeous story in between the beginning and the ending. If we imagine the story as three acts, then the ending is where we see how Act One (the set-up, who the character used to be, their original want) and Act Two (where the character's world changes and they proactively go after their wants, messing up, succeeding, learning and evolving) makes the character who they are now. Do they get the girl? Save the world? Defeat the evil demon? Throw poop on their landlord? Do they come to terms with grief? The ending matters because of everything in the story that the hero has gone through to get there. They have to earn that ending and when they do? Oh, boy, is it satisfying. The Ending Doesn't Matter Much if You Don't Make It Matter You want to give your readers the answers to the questions that exist in your story. No loose ends. No mysteries that just end with a 'to be continued' because you've hit 70,000 words. It is all about satisfying the reader. If you promise the reader a sexy romance and there's no sex and the significant other slinks off on the last page to go wrestle guinea pigs in Ireland with someone else? You're breaking that promise to the reader and totally not satisfying. You are being a bad lover. I mean writer. Nobody wants that. WRITING TIP OF THE POD Think about what your reader wants. Aim to please your lover/reader. DOG TIP FOR LIFE Sparty says it's more satisfying to earn your treat rather than just be given the treat. The journey makes the ending more satisfying.
