Coffee-break exercise: Three voices


29 May 2020
Create a three-part conversation in this week's creative writing exercise

Think of three characters, A, B and C. A and B know each other. C knows only one of them. Give them names and think of a situation where these three might meet. Take five minutes.

Now throw into the mix the fact that person A, who knows both other characters, is hiding something from B. Person C is privy to this information - in fact, it's pivotal to them knowing A. Decide what this information is.

Write the conversation between these three characters.
