Dialogue Writing

  Writing a dialogue can be challenging, especially in an autobiography.  One reason why is because you cannot remember the exact conversation you had with someone.  These following rules can help you: accuracy, succinctness, and liveliness.

  First, accuracy.  Your dialogue does not have to be the exact words said.  However, you have to make it accurate.  For example, your friend says, “What I have learned that you should pay more attention to the things around you.”  You could write in your autobiography : “One day my friend told me that it is best to pay attention to things around you.”

Second, succinctness.  You should make the dialogue easy to understand.  If your readers do not understand what you were talking about, they will lose interest in your story.  Keep it simple.  You can use a few big words to help them learn.  You might lose a few people, though.

Lastly, liveliness.  Make your dialogue interesting, exciting, etc.  This will help your readers become more interested in your dialogue.  They will want to read more.  Also, try to make it feel like the reader could be right there in the story.  These rules are only a few to making your dialogue enjoyable, interesting and believable.



Price Controls Controls People

   Price controls are people controls.  Just think about it.  Price controls are what the government uses to help “control people from buying too many things or paying too little for an item”.  Price controls controls the people.  It forces them to pay that much money for that item.  The government will not let them pay any lower for that item.  Therefore, if the people want it, they have to pay the price that the government has set for it.  The people can say I do not want to pay this much for this item, but the government will say that you still have to pay that amount.  You have to buy food to live, therefore you have to pay like $3.00 for a gallon of milk, about $2.00 for a loaf of bread, etc.  The prices are crazy, yet we still pay that much for the food we need.   That means that the government controls us and controls what we buy.

Kourdakov’s Writing Style

   Kourdakov’s way of writing is very grabbing.  He made me not want to read it but yet made me curious to what happens next.  He also made me wonder why he swam away from the ship in the beginning of the book.  He made me feel sick when he talked about him and his men raiding the Christian meetings.  But he kept me reading and I kept feeling terrible.  Still, I kept reading and reading.  I wanted to get to the part where he finds out that all of this is wrong.  I was glad when I stopped reading about the Christian meetings, but I wanted to keep reading until the end.  His way of writing is so very gripping that you feel like you are right there in the middle of the story, and even when you do not want to read anymore, you keep reading.  He tells his stories very well.


Who Should Set Prices, the Free Market or the State?

   The free market should set prices, not the state.  The state puts taxes on several products making the item cost more.  All of that tax money goes to the government and the people pay for it with their own money.  If the state sets prices (Oh wait! it already does),  the prices would be high and they are.  In the free market, it would be the opposite of the “state market”.
