The “block” page: Another mistake occurs at the opposite end of the spectrum with what is called the “block” page. When a writer fills a page with only visual action paragraphs (usually quite long) and no dialogue, the page literally looks like a block of text. The read, therefore, becomes a slower, thicker, more labor-intensive experience. In order to avoid this, dialogue needs to be inserted to break up all the action, hence, one of the reasons the one-liner has become synonymous with action films.
