Dialogue?

I worry about mine in my fiction, that it's fake-sounding and not realistic. And then I listen to a popular show like ER last night, and my gosh - that's fakey dialogue! (For those of you who watch it, I'm thinking especially of the break-up dialogue between Neela and the Australian guy. Just sounded like a disquisition on emotions in the abstract, rather than a conversation between two flesh and blood people who are distraught.)

So, what I'm saying - I'm not the only one with problems!

Writing dialogue makes me feel self conscious as well. Then I watch something like "Pirana 2" and I think, "Wow, look at those wankers. At least I don't suck that hard."

Thank goodness for 80s horror movies : )

oh my! Well, I guess I was setting my sights a bit higher. I was just a little surprised last night, as I think ER is a pretty good melodrama, with decently believable dialogue. Perhaps it didn't help, that those two are two of my least favorite characters on there.
