Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It depends on the setting, plot, and reason behind the dialogue. What are you writing it for?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Write it in the vernacular. Leave out the parts your reader doesn't care about (Like "Hey what's up" "Nothing" "Okay") You'll notice these pointless conversations are absent from most fiction. Try to keep it natural.
