See if you can focus on dialogue this week in your journal entries. Listen to the dialogue around you. It doesn't have to be a long dialogue. One writer overheard two men talking at the local tennis club. He wrote in his journal this brief exchange:
"Sure is raining out there."
"Yeah, we got real duck weather on our hands."
Try to make three entries during the week, at least one half-page each. (Feel free to write more.)
Find a photograph (or a newspaper advertisement) featuring two people. Write a dialogue between the two people, based on the situation or emotion you see.
Turn on the TV to a weekly drama and then turn the sound on mute. Listen for a few minutes and then write the dialogue you think is going on.
Write an imaginary dialogue between you and someone you need to speak to but are afraid to - or they are far away.
