Writing 101, Day Seven: Give and Take

Posted on

Writing 101, Day Seven: Give and Take– Focus today’s post on the contrast between two things. The twist? Write the post in the form of a dialogue.

Today’s twist: write your post in the form of a dialogue. You can create a strong opposition between the two speakers — a lovers’ quarrel or a fierce political debate, for example. Or you could aim to highlight the difference in tone and style between the two different speakers — your call!



‘ I don’t know why I have taken this daily writing assignment when it takes a week to come up with something.’ I complained.

My friend chirped’ You dimwit! You are not made for writing, why don’t you take some other challenges, like photography or painting.’

‘ You are so rude. Can’t you say something encouraging. Here I’m struggling to write something and you are making fun of me.’

‘ I’m your childhood friend. I know very well what your limitations are. You were very bad in essay writing , do you remember?”

‘ So what! Now I have decided to write so I’ll try. Shouldn’t we attempt difficult things out of our comfort zone?’ was my final decision.

‘ Oh! go  jump in the well.’  Friend left irritably.



( I have written this post by taking a cue from Ben’s reply to resilientone14)




About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing thought, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  2. ‘ Oh! go jump in the well.’ Friend left irritably.

    “Who is the dim wit now. You know I don’t know how to swim.”

    “But you’ll make good fish food!” said the friend.

    I pushed my friend into the well. She was bigger and could feed more fish!

    We both lost – the fish won!


  3. in this case the writer should ignore the friend and write 🙂


  4. I enjoyed the story especially the dialogue.



I would love to hear from you
