For dialogue, for each different speaker make it on a new line and indent the lines

INTERFERING FACTOR
PRONOUNS AND NOUNS
Pronoun substitutes for a noun
Do not need to use he said, she said continuously because that is why u have the
separate lines and indents for dialogue
We use pronouns to avoid overusing nouns
The greater the distance the less clear the pronoun is referring too
You want to make it that there is no mistake who or what your pronoun is referring
too
I (pronoun) = Tracy
He = Jason
Her = Ameerah
Him = Julian
His=Justin

Examples:
o Kwai told John she wanted to take him to N.Y.
oJane and Sue at dinner at Janes place.
