Meeting Tonight-Crits Due

April’s Writing Challenge- Dialog

April’s writing challenge is an dialog exercise.

The concept is to write a scene with characters exchanging dialog, but WITHOUT dialog tags or any description.

Just the dialog itself.  (In other words, just what is inside the quotes!  )

Sherry and I got the idea from the Writing Excuses podcast.

There were two episodes where they did this exercise.  The links are here

http://www.writingexcuses.com/2011/01/16/writing-excuses-5-20-more-dialog-exercises/

It should be two pages, double space. (roughly 350 words)

I wouldn’t worry about trying to complete the scene.  The exercise is meant to work on dialog.  Focus on creating the scene and characterization through the dialog.

Due Date… The April 11th meeting

Any questions, feel free to ask!

Meeting Tonight!

Hey Quillians!

It’s Monday!  Time for another meeting!  We will probably discuss the critiques just upload and other topics that your creative minds can dream up.  Looking forward to seeing you!   At the Fantasy and Science Workshop building at 6PM PST.
