Happy Wednesday, Writers! We’ve made it half way through the week. Only a couple more days to go before the weekend! Welcome back to another installment of Write About It Wednesday! This week our Writing Word of the Week is: Dialogue. Therefore, today we are providing you with three short dialogue prompts.
Dialogue can make or break your story. Dialogue done right can advance your plot, reveal information about your characters, and create chemistry while demonstrating the relationships between characters. Done wrong, and it leaves your story flat, unbelievable, and in some really bad instances, can make your story unreadable.
With so much riding on good dialogue it is important to practice writing fresh, snappy, and believable dialogue. Your dialogue needs to be true to the characters that you have developed.
- Write a story about a character who would say, “I’ve done a bad, bad thing.”
- Write a story about a character who would say, “Give me coffee, or get lost.”
- Write a story about a character who would say, “I didn’t mean it; if I could take it back, I would.”
Okay, writers! You’ve got your prompts. Get to writing! We’ll see you on Friday for Free Topic Friday where we will be discussing dialogue in more depth.
We’d love for you to share some of your stories that you have written with the prompts we’ve provided. Leave them in the comments! Or share them to our Facebook Page.
Write On, Writers!
