Dialogue! The thing that makes your characters likeable and fun! Having good paced, relatable and realistic dialogue is the key to having characters as such! A character is what he/she/you portray them to be. If you give a character monotonous and bland dialogue, that character will come across as being bland and boring, as the dialogue would suggest. The dialogue makes the character who he/she is, so make the dialogue fit the character! Also, write in character. This is a VERY useful tip in creating realistic dialogue for your characters; Pretend that you ARE that character that you are writing the dialogue for. What would he/she say/do in that situation? Do this and you will surely have amazing dialogue for your characters!


Tips for making awesome dialogue: Make the dialogue lively! Make it grab the reader's attention, not deflect it. You are also going to want to have a saying/dialogue style or 'tone' that is unique to a character, to make the reader remember that character easier.
