We have been talking about the importance of dialogue in narrative pieces.  We are practicing adding meaningful dialogue in our own narratives.  Here is a place where you can practice writing dialogue and get feedback from your friends...

Some advice:
Use dialogue to
- move a story
- show character
- provide information
- show conflict

Make your dialogue
- realistic
- properly punctuated
 - concise
- purposeful

Give it a whirl...I can't wait to see what you create!

  1. Zach jumped up and down with his arms winging around in the air. As his best friend, Ashley, walked by, he didnt notice her, and smacked her right in the face!
    "Zach, you just smacked me in the face when you were rapidly swining around your arms for no reason!?" Ashley screamed, as she put her arms on her hips, fighting the pain of the smack.
    "It's not like I could have killed you.. Calm down!" He said softly back to her, afraid he was going to be hit back.
    Ashley replied sarcastically, "Nice apology!"
    Zach ignored her as he started jumping around again, but this time, keeping his arms to his sides.
