I love dialogue in a book, I can get bored and zone out if there is too much description. In turn that means as a writer I put a lot of dialogue in my books.
I wonder sometimes if I am more suited to screen writing than novel writing? In my head the dialogue should move the story along, add character to the people in the book. I would prefer to get to know a character through their voice rather than paragraphs of description.
If I am trying to discuss a past event, I don’t always want to describe via flashback but rather get the person to talk about. I have no idea which is correct route of what readers prefer so I tend to stick to what I like and mimic this.
Do you like dialogue to be frequent throughout a book?
