Hampton Roads Writers
Cut out pictures of people from old magazines. Put the pictures in sets of three or four. The pictures in each set should be similar in some way. For example, all of the pictures may be of children who look sad. Then write a paragraph that relates to the set.
For example, the set of sad children might have a paragraph about a pet that died.
Now, write a short scene in which each of the pictured people gets a chance to talk as they "act" out the scene you described in your paragraph. If, for example, you picked children, allow your children's dialogue to sound "child like."
