Scriptwriting: Plot Graphic Organizer

Daily Prompt #24: Inspired by Music

As the music plays, write down whatever comes to your mind.

Today, I want to give you time to write your rough drafts.

To help you with this, I’d like you to first share your ideas at your tables. If someone is stuck, help them out. Before lunch, you should have at least 2-3 ideas you can run with.

Next, use this handy plot graphic organizer to flesh out your idea(s). If you’re deciding between more than one, fill out an organizer for each. This may help you realize which idea has the most potential.  When you’re ready, with the time remaining, start writing your script!

Next week, we are starting a longer unit on fiction. I think many of you have eagerly awaited this! It will include flash fiction, short fiction, and for those who dare, novel writing.

If you want to challenge yourself, I urge you all to sign up for NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month. It’s a unique online environment for coming up with an idea for a novel and committing to it. I’m going to give it a try. Come join me, and we can be writing buddies! It officially starts November 1st. Sign up before then!
