It can be one you already created or a completely new one. You can choose sadness, anger, happiness, and excitement BUT you can also go a bit further and choose to use drunk, flirty, terrified, and eager.You can read a new book or even some of your old writing.Highlight or copy sentences or paragraphs you think are very common experiences that most everyone in the world knows of.Next, rewrite the entire thing using dialogue (including dialogue tags and body language descriptions).You will quickly become better at using dialogue to show and not tell.After you have 4 emotional states, write one page of each using dialogue and narrative your character would use.To start, choose a scene you wrote previously that has little to no dialogue, but is still very important.Your attic can even contain a portal to another dimension if you really want it to.In this creative writing exercise, you’ll start by reading.While non-creative writing can have dialogue (like in interviews), that dialogue is not used in the same way as it is in creative writing.Creative writing (aside from silent films) requires dialogue to support the story.
