How To Develop Convincing Dialogue in Your Travel Writing
TRAVEL IS ALL ABOUT dialogue and interaction between characters.
Too often though, beginning travel writers focus exclusively on one character (the narrator), with little effort made at capturing others’ voices.
For example, a beginning writer will describe a place, say a pueblo in Mexico, then add a brief dialogue:
“Hola,” said the man. “How are you?”
“Muy bien,” I said.
And that’s it. The writer will go back to describing his or her adventures.
