PLOTTING


Open a dictionary and, and without looking, point to a word. Write down the word and then add the word 'Village.' After that do a rough outline for a story.

For instance if you point to the word "zipper" you then will write a story about Zipper Village. Your outline might look something like this:

A. Population varies. Full-time residents range from 400-500. Population with “zipperss” hovers around 10,000.

B. Activities: Permanent inhabitants make temporary zippers comfortable and try to calm fears.

C. Main characters include Terry, a newcomer, and Dr. Ross, a permanent villager.

D. Location: Who knows?
