Here's an example: The bare conversation (Move your mouse to reveal the content) The bare conversation (open) The bare conversation (close) “I don’t like lasagna.” “You don’t like anything.” “I like you.” “Barely.” Source With a setting incorporated (Move your mouse to reveal the content) With a setting incorporated (open) With a setting incorporated (close) Jenny made a face at the cheese-covered plate before her. “I don’t like lasagna.” she said, picking up a fork and poking at it, resting one elbow on the table. In the kitchen, Jake looked at her through the doorway, his eyebrow raised in an amused expression. “You don’t like anything," he said, pointing with a sauce-covered spatula in an accusatory gesture. “I like you.” Jenny mumbled, reaching for the ketchup. Jake gave a chuckle, depositing the spatula in the sink and joining her in the kitchen, his own plate carefully balanced on one hand. “Barely," he said, planting a kiss on the top of the blond spitfire's head as he passed. When he slid into his seat, her face was as red as the sauce drowning his culinary masterpiece. Barely was probably enough. Here's today's! All but the last line is courtesy of Lazy Writing Prompts “Tragic backstories are overrated.” “Then how do I make the audience sympathetic?” “Cut off his toes.” “What?” “He’s walking through town when he’s kidnapped, someone cuts his toes off for trade, and he goes the rest of his life happily even though he has no toes and no one will ever love him.” “How is that any better than a tragic backstory?” "You're the one asking me for writing advice."
