Revising for setting for setting, conflict and dialogue. Let’s look at some examples:

Scar – Does this have setting? Conflict? Dialogue? 

I didn’t hear anything. Didn’t really feel pain. It was more of a weightlessness. Suddenly I wasn’t peddling anymore, and I was slightly up in the air and moving really fast. And then I did hear something, the screech of slamming on the breaks and then I was no longer on my bike, but I was flying through the air. I hit the ground and I rolled and rolled and rolled, and I didn’t really feel anything but I was sitting on my butt on the side of the road. I noticed a chuck of missing from my knee.

Scar- Does this have setting? Conflict? Dialogue?

I was riding my bike home from a friend’s house. I had done this probably a hundred time so I got a little casual going around a turn and I drifted the bike into the center of the road, without looking back. I didn’t hear anything. Didn’t really feel pain. It was more of a weightlessness. Suddenly I wasn’t peddling anymore, and I was slightly up in the air and moving really fast. And then I did hear something, the screech of slamming on the breaks and then I was no longer on my bike, but I was flying through the air.

I hit the ground and I rolled and rolled and rolled, and I didn’t really feel anything but I was sitting on my butt on the side of the road.Two kids who I recognized from the high school running at me, and they get to me and the taller one asks, “Are you dead?” I said I didn’t think so, and the other one says, “Cause we were going like 50!” I laughed a little, but then I noticed a chunk of flesh missing from my knee.
