6 The Art of Garrison’s Storytelling  He uses first person – feels like he is talking to YOU  Creates visual images with words – “imagery”  Repeats important phrases – “anaphora” – to emphasize key ideas  Characters speak – “dialogue”  He comes through as the author – “Voice”  How he felt comes through – “tone”  Why did he tell it?!?! – “Lesson learned”- “Life is what you make it” He introduces the story with the air conditioner tale – “Tomato Butt” has a beginning, middle and end – he then comes back to the air conditioner tale by repeating the lesson learned  He uses first person – feels like he is talking to YOU  Creates visual images with words – “imagery”  Repeats important phrases – “anaphora” – to emphasize key ideas  Characters speak – “dialogue”  He comes through as the author – “Voice”  How he felt comes through – “tone”  Why did he tell it?!?! – “Lesson learned”- “Life is what you make it” He introduces the story with the air conditioner tale – “Tomato Butt” has a beginning, middle and end – he then comes back to the air conditioner tale by repeating the lesson learned

8 TUESDAY, SEPT. 9TH

9 /watch?v=YjqpZbYe6xA Make a list of the things you SHOULD do and the things you should AVOID in a narrative writing:

10 ENGLISH NOTEBOOK – FINAL SET UP FRONT section  MUGS / DAILY GRAMMAR  NUMBERED AND DATED MIDDLE section ALL NOTES ON CONTENT SUCH AS NOVELS, TERMS, WRITING CHARACTERIST ICS, ETC…. BACK section o DAILY JOURNAL ENTRIES o NUMBERED AND DATED

11

12  INTRODUCTION – engage your reader with a hook!  Establish the SETTING and MOOD= atmosphere  Remember the STRUCTURE of a short story : exposition, rising action, climax, falling…, resolution  With careful and selective word choices, convey your TONE = your attitude toward your topic  Write with your own VOICE – it sounds like YOU!

13  FOCUS on one situation and tell it completely, so we can know it as deeply as possible.  Choose and develop your DETAILS [ 5 senses ].  Use DIALOGUE to develop character / move the plot along  Have an end PURPOSE or lesson in mind  Use FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE: metaphors, similes, hyperboles, personification, etc…

14 AVOID  Clichés – “ Her cheeks were like roses.” "The first man to compare the cheeks of a young woman to a rose was obviously a poet; the first to repeat it was possibly an idiot."  Aphorisms – “The early bird gets the worm.”  Euphemisms – “ He passed away quietly in the night.” Idioms – “ He had money coming out of his ears!”
