Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so. (Douglas Adams)

Creative and Personal Reflective Writing

  1. Look at your character descriptions and notes and at your setting description.
  2. 2. Put your character into your favourite setting.
  3. 3. Mind-map a plot for your story. Think about:
  4. • How they got there/How they are feeling/ what they are doin
  5. • What kind of conflict they could encounter or have encountered — is it already there and is going to build, or is it over and if so, what now?
  6. • How that conflict could be/has been resolved….
  7. From your mind-map, create a brief plan of your story using the structure in your jotters.

• Show your plan to me and then begin!

Please find 23/25 creative exemplar here: Diminshed Responsibility

As with Creative writing, you will still need to use your five senses to describe setting, but this time you will need to describe the character of yourself in detail — that me, and lots of thoughts and feelings and showing me those — not telling me!!

You also need to tell me how your event has changed you and your thoughts and feelings now when you think about/look back on it.
