Hi, writers! I'd like to talk about length of dialogues in feature scripts. I always loved long ones. In fact, I think that ability to make a 10+ pages dialogue – it's what separates men from boys. But when I started submitting my stuff to contests, absolutely every reader told me same – shorter is better. Apparently, there is this "rule", that dialogues shouldn't be longer 2-3 pages. And that characters should talk only about what is necessary for storyline and nothing else. Personally, I totally disagree with that. But what about you? You like longer or shorter or medium? And what is longest dialogue you ever did? Mine is 20 pages.
