Revealing Plan A

Next, Beachamp reveals his first plan

“What are you going to do with him?” Rob asked.

“I’m studying my options. I figure I could set him up out front of the Kentucky Star, have him draw me some more business into the motel.”

This snippet is pretty simple. Rob asks the question, Beauchamp answers with the core of the plan, and then expands on the detail.

“What are you going to do with her?” 

“Oh, so many things, Roberta. The to-do list is long. I would very much like to be able to communicate with her, talk to her. But don’t let the human appearance fool you, she does not speak like a human.”

“Grandfather, what will they do when you move?”

“Keep coming, week after week. To nothing. I doubt the new owners will entertain a pack of hyenas.”

Again, the second snippet is playing with point of view. This time, instead of hearing the grandfather's plans, we are hearing the plans of the creatures in the darkness. (They plan to keep coming back over and over again, to nothing.)

So it's not quite the same as the original snippet, but it's still similar.

Use dialogue to ask about and reveal a plan.
