Please don't think I'm singling out anyone because of this error or that I don't want to read your blogs because of it. It's a mistake that's all over the place.
I have good news for you. Next week's TIP TUESDAY will feature a guest post by the man who doesn't write guest posts. He's The Silver Fox, who blogs at The Lair of the Silver Fox, and he's going to try to help us learn how to write better dialog. His dialog is mighty smooth.
Infinities of love,
