Episode 284 - Writing Dialogue pt2

Aug 15, 2016

Well this is the SECOND part of our Quackcast on Dialogue! As with last week, this Quackcast is based on a thread in the DD forums discussing different approaches to creating Dialogue in webcomics. This time we have an additional guest though: the mighty Pitface joins, Tantz, Banes and I once more. We have a dialogue on dialogue, natter away and speak in different accents. We also tried using Google Hangouts for this Quackcast instead of Skype for once just to see if that made things any clearer… It did a little. Google Hangouts had it's own non-intuitive issues that we had to work through, but in many, many ways it worked better than Skype! Gunwallace's musical theme was Our little mental hospital. a crazy insane sounding Latin groove. Makes you want to salsa!

Basically, it's the opposite of writer's block. It's a mental pile-up.

Writer's Brain is a terrible condition. It's basically mental constipation. Ideas and wordplay pile up and form a blockage preventing the flow of all the functional thinking required for daily life. Writing it down is the only way to free up necessary brainspace without losing good ideas (or bad ideas or mediocre ideas... They are harder to distinguish than you'd think; I require having them in front of me to compare).

It seems to me that the creators that don't lock down the final dialogue until after the art is finished are writing as the page is being composed. It doesn't seem an afterthought, even if the dialogue isn't written out in script form beforehand. The steady road to QC 300 continues!
