Don't forget to log every day with specific details about what you planned or accomplished.
Artifacts: Your completed short story. You should work on the project for the full 8 days. The number of contraptions created will depend on the intricacy of the contraptions.
Project Details to Know:
Your short story should be 3000 words or more. We use the words to allow for the differences for writing style.
You can use another Independent Project time to add to your story.
I would suggest that you ask your classmates to read your short story and give you feedback. Often what our brains know of the story is not what gets written. Having someone else read and critique your story can ensure that your story make sense.
Your story should be original.
You can write your story in Google Docs or you can write it on notebook paper. I have several different types of notebooks available.
Your Project Plan should include details about your characters and plot lines.
Your Choice Writing link could be articles about creating strong characters, adding details for imagery, or how to write strong dialogue.
