Click add response. Choose a note to record your response. Write a paragraph using this picture as a prompt. Who are they talking to? What is being said? You need to remember: Dialogue is not just people speaking it is also their thoughts and response to people. Therefore it needs to just not be dialogue. Every time a new person speaks, you need a new line (paragraph). This is part of the TIPTOP strategy for structuring paragraphs. This is where you start a new paragraph for every time you change time, place (setting), Topic (generally used in persuasive or informative writing) or Person (New person speaking or introducing a new character).
