8 Literary Essay PromptRead: It’s usually not fun to realize you are lost. You might feel panicked or disoriented until you can figure out where you are.

What is the experience like? How do they find their way back to familiar territory?Write: Write a story about someone who gets lost.This is your actual prompt.

10 A literary essay is part of your final.. If your prompt on your final next week gives you a picture, DO NOT write a story about what you see in the picture. THAT IS WRONG. You are only given the picture to help you with your ideas. If you want, you can completely disregard it. OR Do not write about yourself! This should be made Up.
11 Respond to the promptAs a class, we will plan by listing situations in which people become lost. Then YOU will select ONE that you will write your story about.Put your ideas in a plot diagram- Draft your response by introducing your main character and showing how he, she, or it becomes lost. Then, in a clear, sequential order, describe the events that follow.Revise to use more precise wording, to vary the lengths and types of sentences you use, to make your story more suspenseful, and to add transitions to clarify the order of events.Edit your writing to correct any errors in spelling, grammar, punctuation, or capitalization that could distract readers from enjoying your story.
