You do it every day. You talk to your friends, your coworkers, your pets or (heaven forbid) even your family. Dialogue is an integral part of life,
and as such, an integral part of writing a good story. So, as Brevet-Challengemaster, I am honored to announce the Dialogue Open Challenge
(DOC). The rules are as follows:
1. Entries must be at least 500 words in length. Feel free to ballpark it.
2. Entries must be entirely dialogue. Yeah, that's why it's called a 'challenge'. It's supposed to be 'challenging'.
3. Entries must have the prefix (DOC) before the title.
4. Entries must be in before midnight, EST, July 30th.
That's it. Go wild. No topic in particular, write dialogue about what you want. Blame JebusSaves and Herr Wupy for the rules...I mingled theirs from
the competition thread pretty good.
Frequently Asked Questions:
1. Do I have to be a writer to participate?
Damn no. You can post to the Short Stories section without being a writer. Hell, if you decide to participate, you'll get Writer status.
2. What do I get if I win?
Points, mainly. There's a nice bounty for first, second, third, and some discretionary points for people who we think did above and beyond,
presenting us with excellent, innovative stories that deserve recognition.
3. But I'm not sure. I'm not that good...
C'mon, it'll be fun. You have nothing to lose by participating. This is for fun, remember? It's supposed to be a writing exercise.
So, writers, go to. Enjoy yourselves. Talk away!
