Combining action and dialogue

As we saw in the previous chapter, characters are not static. They move from place to place, wave their hands around, shrug their shoulders and stamp their feet.

Their facial expressions change, they have endearing or irritating mannerisms and their body language can tell you almost as much about them as the way they actually speak.

A combination of action and dialogue, as demonstrated in Passage B above, will bring far more realism and life to the characters than a string of 'he/she said's.
