empowering young writers online

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!
