Coffee-break exercise: Argument


26 February 2021
Write conflict-laden dialogue in today's creative writing exercise

These two people have disagreed about something and it has led to an argument.

Who are they?

What is the cause of their disagreement?

Is the argument really about this, or something more profound?

What happens next? Do they resolve the argument or has it opened up, or deepened, a rift? In either case, how will you show this?
