Use this picture as a prompt to start writing. Here are some pointers to help you:
1. Set the scene -
Where are you? What time of day or night is it? Are you on a school trip or on holiday?
Who are you? Are you a hunter? An elf? A fairy? Just, good ol' you?
2. Creating the story -
You can begin your story anywhere. Remember you have to have a beginning, a middle and an end, however. There also should be a climax - something that goes wrong that the hero has to fix or a problem that has to be solved.
3. Edit and revise -
Always edit and revise your story. Leave it for a few days and go back to it. Read it out loud and you'll hear mistakes. Ask someone to check for spelling or grammar errors.
4. Share your story -
You can either write your story down or read it out loud
You can record your story yourself or ask someone else to do it
You can draw a cartoon of your story
5. Reuse and Recycle -
Don't forget you can come back to this image at any time and write a different story.
