Writing dialogue is a mixed bag. Simply copying a conversation you had with a friend? harder than you think. Is it too long? is it too short? Should I try to lengthen it? Should I try to shorten it? Overall, it’s a good experience. Reliving odd memories which would sound very very dumb to someone reading with no context sound even funnier given that fact. It surely beats 3rd grade writing where after every piece it was ‘xxx said’.
