I've finally finished note-taking for my EMA. The EMA is due in a week on Thursday, so I better get to writing it. I'm pretty sure I know how I'm going to answer the question, but I think it'll be a struggle to hit the 2,000 words.
I've been reading and writing more poetry lately. The stuff I write isn't great, but I do find it more fun to write than prose. Writing a poem is like doing a puzzle.
I've also written a piece of flash fiction, but I'm not too sure I like it. I think there's too much pointless dialogue. I was thinking about writing stories with minimal dialogue, but I'm not sure readers would like that. For example, in my flash fiction, I have the following dialogue:
'Well, something must be wrong, because you're not talking to me.'
I don't know. Sometimes I think it'd be best to skip over this type of dialogue and write instead:
He asked her what was wrong because she had barely said a word. She said it was nothing.
Personally, I think that's much better. It's crisper and simpler.
