Writing Exercise Day 4

Let's write a short story

First we outline with a few details. Just make this up with the first thing that comes to your mind.

1.     Start with a character that you give 3 regular traits and one unusual trait. 
2.     Give him a goal.
3.     Make up his nemesis and how he will work to stop the hero.
4.     Decide what message you want this story to convey
5.     Now describe the plot in 3 easy segments:
-           The introduction
-           The inciting event
-           The resolution

Now go back and write your story (500 words).  The story should write itself with all these elements already decided, but you will be surprised at the twists and turns that will come to fruition while writing it. Have fun and keep creating.

Email me with questions or your story if you want me to read it and give feedback.
