About Dialogue Writing For SSC Program Students

When you are writing a dialogue, pick your main idea. Write as you talk. Remember that you're writing a speech, not an essay. Use concrete words and examples. Concrete details keep people interested. Get your facts together. 

When you revise a dialogue, be sure to punctuate it correctly so that your readers can see who is talking and where a line of dialogue begins or ends. The ruls for using quotation marks, commas, and end marks of puncuation are listed below. 

  • Use quotation marks before and after a character's exact words. Place a period inside closing quotation marks. 
Rahim and Karim are us 

  • use a comma to set off the speaker's tag (he said) from the beginning of a quotation. Place the comma inside closing quotation marks when the speaker's tag follows the quotation.
Haris said, "Come on, Rais. It'll be fun."

"Let's go," Sumon said. 

  • Use quotation marks around each part of a divided quotation. Remember to set off the speaker's tag with commas. 
"I'm not sure," said Rais, "That I feel like it"

  • Place a question mark or an exlamation point inside the quotation marks when it is part of the quotation.
"When will we be back?" Rais asked.

"Hooray!" said dina.

  • Place a question mark or an exlamation point outside the quotation marks when it is not part of the quotation. 
 did I hear Rais say, "Okey"?

I can't believe he said, "Okey"!

  • Start a new paragraph when you move from one speaker to another. 
"How long a hike is it?" I don't know whether I have the energy."

"I. think," said Iris, "that it's about seven miles to the top"
