Really double down on getting a clear picture of what you are about

Bringing a Setting
to Life – Think of a familiar place. It can be a place that
you love, a place that makes your frightened or uncomfortable, or
a place you used to live when you were younger, or a happy memory.
– For each word, write a line of dialogue for a story that reflects
that the character is feeling that particular way.
– Think of things the characters could do or say that would dramatize
what is going on.
For each of the scenes described below, write a few lines of dialogue
to bring the scene to life.
– Describe the first place you ever lived. Include at least four
sensory details about the place.
Writing – Practice your descriptive writing. Find something
or someone in your classroom and observe it or them closely.
Creating a Setting
– Imagine a place where a story might take place. It can be a real
place with which you are familiar, or it can be an imaginary world
or place that you create.
