Dialogues of 500 words or less.


Welcome to the Dialogue 500!

This contest uses only spoken words or internal dialogue!

(Please, none of that he/she said, no "background"-- just dialogue! Hence the name! Write like people speak. Use contractions. Flavor with accents. Branch out. When writing dialogue, anything goes. Throw out all the rules of grammar you've been brainwashed with, write like people talk! )


*Starbl* The Rules-- read'em, love'em, live'em! *Starbl*


*Pointright* one entry per person!
*Pointright* Post here with a bitem link in a new forum post. {bitem:itemnumber} (where "itemnumber" is the item number of the Static Item you are entering.)
*Pointright* Your Static Item needs to be a Short Story, 500 words or less, and must consist of only dialogue.
*Pointright* Remember: it needs to be a story, with a plot, not a vignette.

*Pointright* Donations to this contest can be sent to me.

(please refer to "The illustrated guide to linking if you are not sure how to link your entry to the forum! No entries by email, snail mail, smoke signals, telegraph, or carrier pigeons will be accepted in this establishment. *Laugh*)

*Starbl* Prizes *Starbl*

*Pointright* As always, all eligible entries get 500 smackers just for playing.

First place receives:
*Pointright* Merit Badge of my choosing to define the winner's heroic feats of dialogue and 5,000 Gift Points.

There may be special rounds here or there with extra prizes-- all the more reason to enter early and often. *Laugh* I am also instituting Rally Bonuses in rounds where 10 or more players compete. Rally Bonuses are random prizes of my choosing in order to allow me to reward more people for more writing. Sometimes it's a double entry bonus, and sometimes it's crazier than that. *Wink*



New Prompt....(Runs from the 1st to the end of the month)

SEPTEMBER PROMPT/ You have to explain to little Billy why he must always wear a mask at school.


Contest ends at midnight WDC time on the last day of every month
