Dialogue Exercise: Eavesdropping   2 comments

Privately-owned Public Space Potluck 3

Go to a public place where you can overhear people’s conversations. Listen for strange suggestive sentences that seem to rely on the surrounding circumstances for their full meaning and then take then out of context or not. (Dr. Greg Oaks)

Hope you come up with some great dialogue and have fun while you learn!

Rid yourself of writer’s block. Take the challenge.

Characters in Conflict

Two characters in conflict over the setting, place them indoors or outdoors, public or private, where one character wants to go and the other one wants to stay. Make sue to include dialogue and details of setting. Use small paragraphs and have a new paragraph each time there is a new speaker. (Dr. Greg Oaks)

Good writing to all who choose to take the challenge!
