The Six-Sentence Story

A small friend asked for help in writing stories assigned as homework. Here is the exercise I supplied:

The Six-Sentence Story

1. Tell who is in the story.
2. Tell where the story is set.
3. Something happens!!
4. It really matters, because...!!!
5. The hero/ine does something about it.
6. How it all comes out.


1. Describe some nouns.
2. Make verbs exciting.
3. Make the hero/ine interesting.
4. Vary the length of the sentences.
5. Try changing the order of the sentences.

Stay tuned.  I might try writing some of these myself - would you like to, too?
