First of all watch this: ( I am afraid that it is in swedish but I have to admit: I didn't have time make one)
1. Find inspiration and gather ideas
Use www.padlet.com or a Google Drive document if you want to.
If you don't know what to write about you can try doing this: ( If you already know what to write about you can skip this part and move on to step 2)
1. Write down 5 words (things)
2. Write down 3 places you like
3. Write down 3 things that you are afraid of
4. Write down 3 names of people you really dislike - famous people or not - it doesn't matter
5. Write down 3 names of people you really like - famous people or not - it doesn't matter
You have now made 5 lists with words - take a minute and underline one word from every list.
Use the underlined words and you have:
One thing that is important in your short story
a good character
an evil character
2. Write a “logline” by describing what happens in your short story with only one sentence. A logline is also very useful when you are writing a script for a film.
Your character + something that describes your character and environment + action + conflict
Here is an example:
A 17th Century tale of adventure on the Caribbean Sea where the roguish yet charming Captain Jack Sparrow joins forces with a young blacksmith in a gallant attempt to rescue the Governor of England's daughter and reclaim his ship.
Which film is it?
A young man and woman from different social classes fall in love aboard an ill-fated voyage at sea.
