(ERW2_2018) 1- WELCOME TO ERW 2 - CREATIVE WRITING (edited)

Let's start our second module!

 I want you to keep reading (this time whole books) and to start writing your own story / book!

Yes, that's true! Scary? Maybe! But just dare and do it! :D

 

Avoid procrastination!  (By the way, what's procrastination?)

 

The writing part: 

 

This task may seem a big elephant! But start now and little by little you'll get it done! 

To complete this task I want you to USE THIS TOOL

This website will help you get started with creative writing and help you overcome potential writing blocks. 

It will generate names of characters, jobs, cities, lines, give you some random words and so on.

You will be writing the (who knows?!) craziest story ever written! 

 

I'm expecting a three chapter story for example (1 page per chapter I think would be ok, but write as much as you want) with (at least) 10 suggestions from the above mentioned tool. The final "product" is going to be your story and the suggestions given by the website. So, remember to record (with print screens for example) the suggestions given by the website that you are using to write your story, so I can get a sense of your writing process and creativity.

 

For example, in order to start your story go to the tool and:

- Generate a first line or

- Go to the Plot generator or

- Choose a random Story Title

- or a random line of a dialogue

(or others!)

Every time you feel blocked, "without inspiration", go back to the website and generate random words, random lines, random scenarios, random pictures, whatever you want. When you are introducing or describing a place, person or moment, generate the details with the tool. 

 

OR 

 

You can generate right now ten or more "ingredients" (choose from the list given by the website in the menu on your left) and put them together in your story.

 

Note: If you really don't like what you get, you can, of course, press the button again and the website will generate a new suggestion. There are many, many options!

 

 

Think of this creative writing task like a cooking show:

 

The ten ingredients given were (10 suggestions generated by the program) ....

and this is the final product (your story): ... 

 

Remember: You can get the ingredients in the beginning or you can start with a couple of them and keep adding till you get 10 (or more).  

When you finish it, put it in your portfolio. 

 

BEFORE WRITING, share your feelings about the task, the tool (try it just for fun!) and the videos (Dare and procrastination).  

How do you feel right now? Excited? Panicking? Overwhelmed? Inspired? 

 

And then, dare and start writing! 

 

Share your story in your BLOG (see my next post on blogs)

 

And of course, enjoy!
