Who here has ever skimmed over rich detailed paragraphs of description scrambling to find the next section of dialogue?
Well written dialogue can move your story forward more effectively than pages of narrative.
The Dialogue Only Contest is an opportunity to create a clear and compelling story using nothing but dialogue.
Your entry can be up to 250 words. Even the smallest words add to the word-count (we believe in the power of the little guys) and contractions count as one word (because working together makes us better!)
You may have as many characters as you choose, but the dialogue must stand on its own without any description, gestures, narration, or dialogue tags (i.e. he/she/they said).
For this contest grammar is secondary and your entry does not have to follow standard rules for writing dialogue.
