Writing a recording?:

I'm writing a short story with a word limit of 500 - 2000 for a collection of horror stories. I've already done a rough draft as a series of diary entries concerning The Rakecreepypasta. Although I originally included a short transcript, it interrupted the flow of the story and a friend advised trying to write it entirely as a cassette recording but I'm having trouble doing so, especially with two main characters. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Maybe the recording is in the form of a video camera or camcorder, like in Cloverfield. That sidesteps the 2 main characters problem, at least.

Treat the story as a radio drama. Sound effects and dialog must take the place of action and description. Let the reader fill in some of the blanks with imagination.
Under World. It rocks!

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
