Well done to everyone for the super work that's coming in. Particularly pleased to hear about how TinyTurtle21 and Itsyourboybob are collaborating online. We know that some of the Kestrel girls were also doing this last year. How brilliant!
Today, you're ready to start writing your story! Aim to take your time and write something really detailed and well-told. If you start today, you can finish/edit and check tomorrow. Remember:
- Capital letters, full stops, paragraphs (indented!)
- Speech that moves the story on
- Super vocabulary -- you could use a dictionary/thesaurus: https://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english-thesaurus
- Show what the characters are thinking and feeling through speech. (Think back to "The Lie Tree" and how some people don't say what they're really feeling -- how can you show this?)
- Use powerful verbs, adverbial phrases and other descriptions -- perhaps even metaphors, similes and personification?
- Have fun!
