DejectionNothing fits right now. Everything is slightly askew and won't fit correctly. I'm like a wet puzzle piece, I won't work.
You see me and wonder "what's wrong?" You see me and begin to think you did something to make me the way I am. Anyone sees me and wonders "what's wrong?"
Does something have to o wrong? Did something have to happen? Better yet, why do you think you did something at all?
You pay me compliments, unsolicited and biased. My expression doesn't change. Eventually you will become hostile and I won't change. Frustrated, you'll leave me be and ask, at a later time, "What was wrong?"

But the flowers on the stand in the corner are vibrant, warm, and inviting. In a way, they help the room be a little more comfortable. They appear like they want to hear all stories the pictures have to tell and hear all the things anyone in the room might say.
Because of the flowers, people want to be in this room more than any other. The television is often off, the radio tuned out and stories of epic proportions are told with grand enthusiasm.
In time, though, the flowers begin to fade. They lose their vibr
A Guide to Writing DialogueWhat is dialogue, exactly? The definition from Merriam-Webster’s dictionary was several lines long, so I shall summarize it in a short sentence for the sake of the readers; it’s the writing that illustrates conversations between two or more characters in a story. We read and hear it all around us, but creating it in your own work can be a challenge. However, if you find dialogue an obstacle in your writing, then don’t push the panic button. In this tutorial, you’ll find by analyzing what dialogue can do and how to use it, you can turn your greatest fear into your greatest ally in your story.
What dialogue is
Like I’ve asserted before, dialogue is basically what the characters are saying to each other. It can be found in multiple mediums such as books, movies, comics, video games, etc. We even engage in dialogue daily without even thinking. When you talk to your best friend, a co-worker, or even your dog, you create dialogue. It’s exchang
