Add to the Adventure

TeamworkAnonymous started a new adventure under Group Projects~Stories. Click on Adventure #3, read the beginning, then decide what happens next. Remember, anyone can continue group projects stories. I think it should be you.

Elsy cranks up the trouble and mystery in two of her ongoing stories.

In Chapter 8 of Marked Five, we learn why being one of the chosen isn’t necessarily a good thing.

In the next installment of Now What? the ghost who’s been stuck haunting Kia’s room has found an unexpected way out.

suggestion_box2For the writing contest, Elsy suggested adding a requirement for the entries. For example, all entries could have the same theme or start with the same sentence or include the same character. I think this is a great idea. Let me know what you think.

kid writing & computerLots of great writing to share today!

First up, Elsy shares Chapter 4 of Marcia. This story is an excellent example of using Voice. Voice comes from the words and tone and style you choose for your story. It also includes the details, descriptions, actions, and emotions you choose to share. Make these choices based on how your narrator tells the story and your readers get to know your narrator. In Marcia, Elsy does a great job of letting her narrator’s attitude come shining through. This is the opening sentence of Chapter 4: “It was… breathtaking? Awesome? Enchanting? I could go on for hours, but I won’t because there is slightly more to say here.” Actually, there’s a lot more to say here and you should go read it.

Next up, Ink Wolf wrote Chapter 2 of Misty Island. I love Ink Wolf’s wild imagination and I know you will, too. Ink Wolf comes up with the most incredible characters in this story and shares just the right amount of imaginative details to make them unique, interesting, and fun. Ink Wolf is also very good at showing characters’ personalities through the way they talk.

And last but not least, Ink Wolf shares Hunter’s Adventure. This is a complete short story with action and adventure, told through the eyes of a kitten.

Enjoy!

ghostRead the latest submission of Elsy’s Now What? to find out who else lives in Kia’s new house. Go on. You’re going to love it!

bookMikaela has adapted her story, The Twilight Hero, into a play. I’m excited that she’s sharing both versions on All Write with Me because this is a great opportunity to see the differences in formatting.

Read the story version here and the play version herestage

Writing plays can be challenging because you have to let your audience know everything they need to know through your characters’ dialogue and actions. I think Mikaela has done a fantastic job. Let her know what you think by leaving her a comment.
