Dead Silence

A.J. Kandathil praises the writers of The Walking Dead, who understand that silence is golden:

“Even though every creative writing class you’ve ever taken has insisted that dialogue is a must, I have a secret to tell you. Sometimes people just don’t talk. Sure, dialogue is useful when a scene demands it. It denotes action, felling, and tension. But silence can signify all of those, too, when it’s executed properly.”
