Everyone so far has done a superb job on the Diner Challenge. Now for something different...


Write a conversation between two people. They must have distinct differences that we will be able to ascertain by reading the dialogue.

Don't give details about the surroundings or setting. Don't 'set up' the story ... this is not a complete story but a part of one. We should be able to tell what's going on by the dialogue!

Some examples to get you going:

1) a blustery Maine fisherman trying to buy a present for his wife in a fancy New York store

2) a vapid cheerleader talking to a librarian (or vice versus - intelligent cheerleader talking to a dim librarian)

Remember, we must be able to distinguish the characters by their dialogue.

Good luck!!

If you have questions, please ask here in this thread.

Ok, I did some dialogue in prose for that story "Jack"  (II)  
Is that good enough?

Well, Poet Divine, it was a little more difficult that I thought to leave out the narrative embellishment!  It definitely was a learning experience!  

  Nice exercise.

I did some dialogue, but it isn't what you posted above.  When you critique, please do so on the thread.

Thanks, Sharon.
