Novel Excerpt: Unleash the Inner Editor!

DP #42: Story Starter

After a long, hard day of work, you return home—the only problem is, your front door is wide open, all your lights are on and there’s a sword stuck in the ceiling. The rest of your house looks normal, but you also notice several holes dug in your backyard. What’s going on?

Write for ten minutes.


Today you are going to self-edit your work using your inner editor. On pages 82-84 of your workbook, it has activities to complete to ensure your excerpt (and novel as a whole) is in the best shape it can be.

Happy self-editing!  Tomorrow, we will be Lab 300 so we can review the rubric on Google Classroom and get you working electronically on your pieces.
