Housekeeping, apologies and a new theme
Theme for 7/31/06-8/13/06:
"I guess s/he was just born that way."
Work this sentence into your story. Change the gender to whichever you need. Good luck!
SeaRabbit has generously offered this button to the participants of The Scheherazade Project. I think it's beautiful. If you like, put it on your blog to let people know that you're a participant. Fame and fortune soon to follow. I'm sure. Right. It's true. To get this lovely little button, email me (or SeaRabbit) and I'll send it to you.
Any of you who read my personal blog know that I've been a bit... shall we say... obsessed with something for the last week. Actually, I've been obsessed for longer than that, but I've only been writing it out this last week. So, I didn't do a dialogue. But I love dialogue, so I am planning on doing it. It's just gotta wait until I get my breastfeeding series finished.
Because of my obsession, not only have I not been as quick getting the links updated as I should be (there's a new story for the Blue Monkey, too!) but I also haven't been reading and commenting like I would like myself to. Give me two more days and I'll start catching up. I'm sorry.
To everyone who has been carrying on... GREAT JOB, GUYS!!!! Keep up the good work! I'll deobsess soon, I promise!

Theme for 7/17-7/30
This time, I want you to focus on dialogue. Your piece doesn't have to contain only dialogue. You can have some setting, some reactions. But try to make most of the movement and tension in the piece come through dialogue. The dialogue doesn't all have to be verbal; some people are capable of upholding their end of a conversation with body language alone. But, let's see how much detail and interest you can generate through conversation...
As always, please link your piece to this specific post. That way people can click the "links to" link and see who has participated even if I'm slow on the list-making.

Don't fear the big blue monkey...

Ok, last week's entries (THANK YOU, all you new people!) were just so dark! Since a picture worked so well last time, I thought I would try it again. But with something a bit lighter in tone. Let's see what y'all make of the big blue monkey errr... gorilla!
