They found me!

20 Jan

Yesterday during writing, I was introducing my students to putting dialogue in their personal narratives*.

I mentioned that, occasionally, I like to add dialogue to my writing.  It helps break up chunks of narrative, breathe life into a dull story, deepens character development, etc.  As I was waxing poetic about dialogue, one of my students shot her hand up into the air, and had the sliest of smirks on her cute little face.

“Yes, dear?”

“Miss B, do you like to put dialogue into your writing…like on your BLOG?”  she asked, wide-eyed and smirking ear to ear.

I responded confusedly, as kids begin to whisper around us, “um, sure, just like when I write on my blog!”

She responds, whispering, “I know, Miss B.  I found it.”

“Ohh, that’s weird.  Back to the PowerPoint!” I quickly changed subjects.

She just wouldn’t let it go, and interrupted me, saying, “I’ve read every single post!”

Oh, dear god.

“You have?  Really?  There’s some terrible ones on there…ha!” I mutter, beginning to sweat like a child who’s been caught.

Perhaps, perhaps, perrrrhaps Miss B”.

Oh, dear god.

*Side note: have you ever realized how many rules there are to writing dialogue?  It’s a bit nightmareish for 25-years-olds, let alone 10-year-olds.
