Every author wants to write it.  The one liner that is Remembered and oft repeated.  It is possible for all writers to write theirs.  It really isn't that difficult.  All one has to do is remember a few things.

First of all dialogue needs to sound natural.  A juvenile delinquent would not use formal language any more than a politician would use street slang.  Knowing who your characters are helps with how they speak.  A word to the wise, if you are unfamiliar with the way a certain group of people speak, do not simply make it up.  It will come across as insincere and phony.  It is better to do a little research.

Another way to have better dialogue is to listen.  Not so much as to what people are saying, but how they are saying it.  The demented elves know that sometimes the best oneliner is the one spoken unintentionally, usually an off the cuff remark.  It is highly recommended that should you hear that precious gem uttered, write it down.  You never know when you will want to use it.  Keeping a log of phrases will also help with getting a feel for natural language.

One last item to remember, as a story is an extension of the author himself, it is not a bad idea to put yourself in the shoes of the characters you create.  Ask yourself, " what would I say in this situation?".  It may make the process of writing dialogue easier.  It will also flow more natural because the author is being himself.

I am curious to find out what blog system you happen to be utilizing? I'm experiencing some minor security problems with my latest website and I would like to find something more risk-free. Do you have any recommendations?

I use domains.com my website hosting. One of the pages can be a blog page. It has its own security. If you want a secure page without paying for a domain I suggest doing research on the different blog hosting services.

I'm amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that's both equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt for something relating to this
