... I'll make him an offer he can't refuse... you can't fight in here, this is the War Room... you talking to me, you talking to me... you can't handle the truth... I love the smell of napalm in the morning - it smells of victory... I am shocked, SHOCKED, to find there is gambling going on in here... there's no crying in baseball... if you build it, they will come... I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore... the list is life... what we have here is a failure to communicate...

Let’s face it, no matter how good your story is, if the dialogue is stilted your movie script, book or play won't make it to first base.  It's the first way a film studio or book editor will assess how well you can write.  But if you have sparkling, well-constructed dialogue your story and characters will leap off the page.  

Great Dialogue Software™ has been named by Writers Digest in its "Best Software for Writers".



:  The secret that all the pros know - nothing sinks a script faster than bad dialogue, and nothing gets you noticed quicker than sparkling dialogue.  
PROFESSIONAL SECRET #2: All great dialogue writers use a series of basic techniques.  
PROFESSIONAL SECRET #3:  The best way to learn how to write great dialogue is by example.  

But how do you find the right techniques for the scene you are working on?  Great Dialogue Software™ is an interactive database that gives you thousands of terrific dialogue samples, including the techniques used, all searchable by subject matter (for Windows only). 

The software gives you 
101 invaluable dialogue techniques

used by the pros.

This list was compiled by award-winning playwright and screenwriter Peter Colley, aka "Dr. Dialogue" (no he's not a real doctor, nor does he play one on TV, he just has an obsessive love of great dialogue).  

Peter's plays have been seen in 30 countries, he won a 2000 HUMANITAS AWARD Award for screenwriting, was a semi-finalist for the 2006 and 2007 EUGENE O'NEILL Awards for playwriting, winner of a 2008 NEW AMERICAN PLAY AWARD from Theatre Communications Group (Edgerton Foundation), winner of the 2010 Florida Theatre CARBONELL AWARD for "Best New Work", his Off-Broadway musical "Cagney" was nominated in 2016 for OUTER CRITICS CIRCLE AWARDS (Best New Musical), 2 DRAMA DESK AWARDS, OFF-BROADWAY ALLIANCE AWARD (Best New Musical), and won a ASTAIRE AWARD.  Peter has written feature films, and television scripts for CBS, Fox, Showtime, CBC Canada, British ITV and many others.  (For more details see:

We all need to improve our dialogue skills, but the books and courses on how to write dialogue are full of vague generalities that are of very limited help.  Look at the books on how to write dialogue: you can pay $15-20 plus shipping for a hundred pages of "try to make it real" blather that won't improve one line of your dialogue (as if you tried to make it false?).  You could take a course at the UCLA Writer's Program ($350), The Learning Tree University ($175), The Hollywood Scriptwriting Institute ($395), which, plus the books, comes to about $1000.  Or you can buy Great Dialogue Software for only $19.95 and have a terrific dialogue tool by your side any time you need it.  

The truth is, the best way - perhaps the only way - to really improve your dialogue skills is to see great dialogue in action and have specific techniques you can use in different dramatic situations.   Great Dialogue Software has a database of thousands of samples of the best dialogue from movies, TV, novels and plays, and they are all available at the click of a button.  Just type in the subject matter of your scene and click "Find".  Most of these samples also have a detailed analysis to instruct you how the dialogue was constructed and why it works.  Great Dialogue Software gives you 101 SPECIFIC DIALOGUE TECHNIQUES used by the pros that any writer will find invaluable in creating that perfect scene. 

Whether you want to write a screenplay, write a play, write a book, write for television, or just cure a case of writer's block you will not find a more useful piece of writing software, and it’s guaranteed or your money back.

The power of the software lies in the proprietary Dialogue Master search engine.  Dialogue Master does not just search for the actual text in the dialogue samples, because there can be a love scene that never mentions the word “love”, or a police interrogation scene that never uses the words “police” or “interrogation”. EVERY dialogue sample has multiple keywords attached and it is these keywords that help the writer find the perfect sample and dialogue technique to inspire and educate, no matter what kind of scene you are working on.  While Great Dialogue Software doesn't actually write the script for you, it will give you that edge that will make the characters in your screenplay,  novel or play come vividly to life.  There are many techniques and examples for both comedy and drama.  Just keep the program running in the background while you write and whenever you need a jolt of inspiration, it's only a few keystrokes away.
