Good dialogue makes great description

​Dialogue can be a great shortcut when it comes to describing the character. What the character says reveals more than pages of description. She reveals herself through her words; her thoughts, feelings and influence.

For instance, when she says “Politicians! They should be cut into pieces and fed to the lions” you know her better than if you had just written ‘She had extreme opinions on politicians.’
