Week 22 Fantasy!

Fantastic! That’s how the stories we have been enjoying could be described. The Stranger, Cendrillon/Cinderella, and Heat Wave! are filled with marvelous events we can only wish were real.

This week, write your own fantastic story. Keep it somewhat simple. Focus on one small event rather than writing an entire series like the Lord of the Rings! You will be able to tell a better story if you keep it small enough to tell it well with the details that will make it interesting. As we noted in Heat Wave!, use specific strong verbs such as rippled, twisted, squirmed, and snagged.

I can’t wait to see what your imaginative minds will create!

Due Monday, March 10.
