This week, let your imagination run wild and make your own creative writing piece. You could write a story, make a comic, research a fact-file, write a poem...it is up to you!
Plan your idea - make a map of the story arc so you know the journey your character is taking.
Don't forget detail - the more detail you add, the better the reader can picture your story. Use expanded noun phrases and subordinate clauses to help.
Vary those sentence starters - no reader wants to read the same sentence starter over and over again. Use fronted adverbials for when and where as well as adverb starters to keep your story flowing.
Use your senses - show sentences that use the characters senses (sight, sound, taste, feel and smell) to describe what is going on or how they are feeling.
