Julie says: Today we continue our look at short stories as not-mini-novels and play with them in ways you can only play with short stories!
Write a story completely in dialogue
It’s probably best to keep this to two characters because it’s harder to have more than two characters, without attribution.
I want you to keep it straight in our heads, who’s talking, simply by the way they talk.
A guy who works on Wall St should sound different from a farmer from a rural area.
This year I won’t be publishing the stories here as I want to send them off somewhere and blogging online counts as published which most outlets won’t accept but will let you know each day how I got on the previous day… so you know I’m doing the challenge with me. Do leave a comment below to let me know how you do.
And me? <laughs> Yep. Still on day one and not looking good (too much work) for any catch up this weekend. I’ll try.
