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!

Writing Prompts: Day One   8 comments

I am taking this fantastic college class of creative writing. The last few weeks, our instructor has given us thought-provoking prompts for our weekly writing assignments. I want to share these, one at a time, to give you the same opportunity to create your own creative writing assignment.

First writing prompt.

“Your first person narrator is feeling something intensely such as love-giddiness, grief, lust, disgust. Pick a particular setting and have the character describe what he or see in such a way that we have a feeling for what he or she is feeling. Show the sadness through how the character describes the trees outside the window. Use your character’s word choices, perceptions,, selection of details commentary or voice.” Dr. Greg Oaks

Have fun and share your results with us if you choice to do so.
