Today we talked about common mistakes in dialogue using this fabulous article from The Creative Penn. Then we wrote and conferenced for the remainder of the period.
Fiction DUE today! I will print it at the beginning of fourth period. If you think your work is not complete, that’s fine–you’re welcome to put a note at the top of your page identifying the main thing you’re concerned about or thinking about so that you can get feedback on it in workshop, for example:
- I was in line to conference with Mrs. B about the dialogue in the middle section, which I think is a bit weak, but I didn’t get signed up in time. Any feedback on that is much appreciated!
- I wrote an awesome beginning as well as the ending, but I totally left out the middle. I’m not sure what needs to happen to get from the start to the finish. I’d love to get feedback on that in workshop.
