Poor dialogue

Poor dialogue happens when the writer isn’t sensitive to the way his character talks. Poor dialogue is when characters overact and the dialogue is explicit. Poor dialogue is when it is used to drag the story along.

If the dialogue does not develop the plot or show the characters’ personality or ambitions, then leave it out. Sometimes silence works best.
