Michelle Haimoff, author of These Days Are Ours, recently stopped by The Daily Fig to impart some worthy advice to writers: keep a record of what your friends, and the people around you, say–you just might find that their words make their way into your stories. We’re asking you to follow Haimoff’s guidance and write down real dialogue spoken by your friends. Once you have the raw material, you should feel inspired to work it into a fictional scene. If you upload and tag your writing haimoffbff by 12 PM E.S.T. on March 16, 2012, you’ll get the chance to be featured on the Figment homepage (and will win universal bragging rights besides).
