I believe this is my first time posting here.
I just had a question for anyone who may be able to assist me.
I'm currently working on a novel (fiction - thriller). The opening chapter is to begin with a 911 call being placed by a woman in distress. The novel is written in third-person perspective, past tense. So, how would the conversation take place?
Every time I try to play it out, I think of news segments or scripts in which it is written something like this:
Dispatch: 911, what's your emergency?
Caller: Someone's been shot.
Dispatch: Who's been shot? Where are you calling from?
This, obviously, won't work in my novel...so...what are my options?
I tried looking through previous entries and tags and found nothing that fit exactly what I'm looking for. Hopefully this is allowed and on-topic.
Any and all advice, criticism and/or opinions are welcomed and appreciated.
