I decided to organize a weekly creative writing exercise in the office to sharpen the skills of the writing pool. Everyone takes a turn inventing an exercise or a prompt.

The only general rule we've been using is that it should be doable in an hour or so. We've also tried to keep things fun.



Please feel free to share your own exercise efforts by leaving a comment. You can do that at the end of each exercise by clicking on 'Share your own effort'. Enjoy!

Exercise 26 - Dialogue 3

Luida, the one who hosted the exercise this week wasn't around last week so she didn't know we had done dialogue already last week.  Anyway, I thought it was still worth doing:

 

Write a short scene with two characters entirely in dialogue.  The story should describe the characters' relationship with each other, the setting, and the action of the story, all in the dialogue.

 

Extra school work

 

Claire: Please don't go yet. 

 

Darwin: I have to. Class starts in forty five minutes. 

 

Claire: Is it ten already?

 

Darwin: Yes, now will you please throw me my shirt.

 

Claire: Where?

 

Darwin: The one under your pillow.  Thank you.  You know, you should be getting ready now too.  The shower heater is working now, by the way.

 

Claire: Oh good, you had it fixed yesterday?

 

Darwin:  Yes, but you better hurry.  And I'll have to go ahead.  Be sure to lock the door when you go.  And turn the aircon off this time okay?  My bill last month was 900 you know.

 

Claire: Why don't you come here baby.  You're so uptight.  We still have half an hour at least.

 

Darwin: No I don't.  I still need to get ready for class.

 

Claire:  Why? You forgot to prepare your notes again?  What kind of a teacher are you?  You owe it to your students to come to class with a ready lecture.  So what are you going to do today?  Give another research assignment?  I'm sure your class will appreciate your 'preparation'.

 

Darwin: First off, I don't like your tone there girl.  Second, school research work makes learning more engaging and you should know that.  And lastly, you've got nerve telling me I should prepare my lectures when you know darn well why I haven't been able to do that these past days.

 

Claire: And what's been keeping you busy, 'professor', that you can't find the time anymore to prepare for class?

 

Darwin:  Do I have to answer that?

 

Claire: Don't give me that look like I'm the guilty one here.  Its not like I come here uninvited you know. 

 

Darwin:  You asked to be invited.

 

Claire:  You so obviously wanted to invite me.  Whatever. 

 

Darwin:  Look, I gotta go.  If you hurry, you can still make the roll call.

 

Claire:  Tell me professor, did I pass midterms?

 

Darwin:  Actually, no but maybe tonight you can change that.
