One Pager # 1 Expressive writing option 1 st person perspective- from your point of view Use of dialogue An experience you’ve actually had/having with a certain person/thing, in a particular place, at a designated moment, a repeat experience Remember, it’s only one page! Be sure to plant the seed- allow it to grow- but be sure to tie it altogether.
One Pager # 2 Choose a character who is not the usual focus of a popular fairy tale, and tell their account of a significant event. (e.g. the Prince’s ball from the perspective of one of Cinderella’s step-sisters, the day Grumpy met Snow White from his perspective, Mama Bear’s account of the day Goldilocks came) Expand on a free write in the life of another person. You will have another free write topic Tuesday. Retell the story from your first one-pager from the perspective of someone else who was present or involved. Expand one of your seed stories
Reflective writing option 1 st person from an alternate perspective Include a secondary purpose- beyond entertainment- theme, lesson, societal problem, complicated subject… Use dialogue (create tension, develop relationships, move story forward) Remember, it’s only one page!
One Pager # 3 Reflective + Expressive, dialogue, figurative language, sensory images, descriptive language 3 rd person point of view : the narrator is someone who stands outside the story and describes the characters and actions. Omniscient- narrator knows everything that goes on- including the thoughts/feelings of EVERY character. Limited- narrator describes the event as only ONE character perceives them. NO USE OF “I” unless in a direct quote. Complete blue brainstorm sheet based upon the character’s initials, setting, and topic you picked in class—YES! You must use center your story upon these three qualifiers. Original story – no real or fictious characters, setting, stories that already exist
