Your major assignment for this module will be to create a work of fiction. Choose one of the options below and compose a fictional narrative that makes clear use of each of the elements of fiction (character, plot, conflict, point of view, setting, style, symbol). This is a draft—remember to have fun. Experiment. Take risks. Let your imagination run away with things for a bit.
For many writers, the first attempt at an intro is just an attempt to figure out what we want to write about. It’s fleshing out a variety of concepts and ideas. Now that you have an intro for your first assignment, please cut and paste the introduction into a separate document. For this exercise, you are asked to write two different beginnings to your fiction piece, utilizing a variety of perspectives, dialogue, and the climax of the story. You can choose whatever ways you’d like to re-write the introduction but experiment with the various techniques you’d learned from your readings this week.
