Hey, /pen/, im trying to write a sci-fi story based in the far future. I dont really want to go into what the story is about, but i plan to have it heavily based around internet messages and chats.

Normally when i write, its poetry (and pretty shitty free verse at that), and i have never written a full story before. How the hall do i make the online dialogue nice, and not super shitty? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

>>320

have the dialogue that you and a friend would have, typos, acronyms and lols, keks, and fuck offs.

Make it too proper or out of character; risk disconnecting whatever character you developed as the reader will see that you let your self-conscious take over the dialogue and not the character
