That's very true. This is a great 'dialogue only' contest entry, not only is it what the contest is about, you have the added extra of giving out some good advice. I haven't met one person who has faithfully kept to their New Year's Resolution, in fact, like your character in this scene, I don't know anyone who has lasted the first month! They should read this. Well one and good luck! :)) Sandra xx (one little nit below.)

So, what happened there(,) friend?

    Yeah exactly!! Thats why I wrote this one as I am tired of these yearly shenanigans as well! They are a foolish thing really! You can never depend on a fixed day every year to start a better life for yourself! Today and tomorrow should be those days!

    Was that what you were asking? :-)

This is a well written entry for the dialogue only story contest. Your story held my interest and was pleasant to read. You made some good points about why we fail to keep our resolutions. Great job and thank you for sharing.

Haha, I love the conversation, it feels so real and relatable. I agree that we should try to better ourselves every day. Great dialogue, I really enjoyed reading it.

    Well thank you May! I wrote it because I was tired of these resolutions myself! The ones I used to make and the ones people share! If you are going to be a better person then why wait for a new year? Start now!

"Just another Year"
Is a Dialogue Only Writing Prompt Entry.
Rich in Theme and Imagery.
It also, read well and Flowed well with no Grammar Issy.
...
Complete Synopsis:
The Adjective and Objective Contents were both Excellent and Exceptional while Descriptive Measures aligned Perfectly.
...
Thanks and good luck with this.

L5 - possibly "you said the same thing a year ago" in place of "you said the same thing a year before"?

L11 - possibly "again" in place of "over and again"?

L18 - "self improvement" should probably be "self-improvement".

Last Line - "new years'" does not need the apostrophe.

Just some observations. Feel free to use anything that helps and/or chuck the whole shebang.

So clever and so true, resolutions cannot only be made for a few days they must occupy our daily work ethics, an excellent story, very well written and best wishes for your contest****kahpot
