Overheard Conversation

Use any of the following snippets of dialogue as an “overheard conversation” story starter. In other words, start off a short story or scene by imagining that your main character has just overheard the following brief snapshot out of someone else’s conversation:

  • “That’s when I realized that if I didn’t kill her, someone else would. And I couldn’t let that happen.”
  • “She was the most beautiful little girl I’d ever seen. It was a pity, really.”
  • “I’m telling you, he was there. I know he was dead, but he was standing right at the foot of my bed, clear as day.”
  • “Go ahead. Open it. You don’t have to be afraid.”
