note: For Thursday’s article, “Matt and Ben Are Bad People,” scroll down.
Yesterday’s dialogue experiment was such a success, I want to do an entire week of them. Your dialogue scenes versus the pros. Here’s how it’s going to work. Send your dialogue scene to email@example.com with the subject line “ME VS. PRO.” It needs to be 3 pages or less. Set the scene up briefly. Who the key characters are, what happened before the scene, and any important plot information we need to understand the scene. I’ll pick five of these scenes and find pro scene counterparts for us to compare to. I may do this next week or the week after, so get your scenes in quick!
