What if?: Idea for next writing assignment

Idea for next writing assignment

I sent this via email to Giovanna and she said go for it...

Write a piece with only dialogue. No narrative. Either in play format, as in Name: Line,

or Name said, "Line".

The purpose is to use the dialogue only to convey the story elements, the setting, the tone, the arc, etc.

I think 750 word limit should apply.

I am not a task master but I think by a week from this Thursday is a good goal.

Have fun.

I was picturing writing with tags, or even using minimal tags, if you can pull it off and not confuse the reader. LOL

So either way, NO exposition for you!

Danke Daniel!

Only dialog? Can you use tags to help convey meaning?
