Growing a Story

Exercise: Start Some Stories

Start a document with 2-3 story ideas, each one including:

  • Premise: the summary of the story, “Princess is rescued by dragon from brutish knight. She marries the dragon and becomes a fierce warrior queen.”
  • Theme: the message of the story that you want the audience to take home, “Women should decide their own happily ever after.”
  • Characters (if you need them)
  • The ending
  • The beginning

Hang onto your work! You'll need it for the assignment at the end of this section.
