Time to review our class word counts and award some more winners for the first challenge: reaching 25%!
The next challenge is for the first ten people to reach 50%! The prizes get progressively better, so push yourself!
Today’s focus is on plot structure. In your workbooks, silently read pgs. 19-25. It’s a great refresher on what a basic plot should have.
Next, complete the activities on page 26 and the plot roller coaster on page 27. Doing this will ensure you are on the right track with your plot. Show Mrs. Keskes when you are finished to earn your points!
Here’s a refresher on what you should complete for points:
- Character Questionnaire (pgs. 12-14)
- Conflict Handout (pgs. 16-18)
- Plot Description (pg. 26)
- Plot Rollercoaster (pg. 28)
You have the hour to keep working on these activities. The last ten minutes, you’ll continue writing your novel to add to your growing word count.
DP #30: Write your novel
Write non-stop until the end of class: anything and everything to do with your novel. Feel free to bring your own technology if you want to type instead of hand write.
