Here's another great challenge presented to you by G.M. Jackson
I have no idea what a spicebush caterpiller is, but the challenge is on, so what I can do? I can't remember when I've ever stayed on topic in a conversation. For me it's an attention deficit. Most of my friends have the same problem, so we're in sinc. Wait, how did I get off on my friends? Back to the subject, spicebush caterpillers. Hmmm - scratch that.
Okay, I'm back on track. Please go to second paragraph above.
Keep in mind, this is a monitored group and there are only a couple of rules, which are:
Make sure you put this (WWE, 11/21/12, On Off) in your title.
Be sure to tag it with WWE, Gather Writing Essentials, On Off. Post to Gather Writing Essential.
I ask that you make your submission(s) by next Tuesday afternoon.
There is a limit of three submissions from each member per day. If you’re extremely prolific, spread out your work and post only three submissions per day.
Put this challenge statement at the beginning or end of your submission so readers will know what you’re supposed to do and won’t think you’re crazy.
Challenge: This will be an on-topic/off-topic dialog? First you write dialog between two or more characters that is on-topic, then below that, you write dialog that drifts off-topic (like a real conversation) but eventually gets back on track, or doesn't. In the latter case, one character might say, "How did we end up talking about spicebush caterpillers?" or whatever.
