Thoughts on dialogue

Hmmm....just finished tweaking entry five after Gina did her own tweak. Now it's got me going. I'm leaning toward the whole, "you can write decent dialogue without tags and beats", IF you do it independently of the scene itself. Bujold says she does that. I love Bujold. How she pulled the Vorkosigan series out of thin air just amazes me. Miles isn't a construct, he's a person.

Got to think about it some more. Seems like working from bare bones, rather than flesh and blood. have to have the skeleton to have the body, so...maybe I'll just write this whole scene I'm working on in dialogue and submit it. See what's up.
