TIMEPLAN Week 15 - 18
Matris - Writing Project, The Island
To think about when you write your story:
Use many verbs, it has to happen a lot in your story. Use the film clip we watched in class as inspiration.
The reader has to get to know the main character pretty well to identify with him/her/they. The reader should like the main character (let this character do something positive in the beginning of the story). What could it be?
Write in first tense singular (jag-form)
Write in present tense (presens)
