Re: Six Tips on Writing from John Steinbeck

I use #6 the most.  It's amazing what dialogue people will write that doesn't sound like real people talking.  In drama class in college we were asked to critique a student-written play and I actually wrote that exact rule ("just because it looks good on the page doesn't mean it sounds good out loud")  and got a nice note from the professor on it. :]
