Person in facing wolf in forest

Wolf Spirit.

What if you had the power to turn into a wolf? What would you do? Would it be a normal wolf or something special?

STUCK?   Try this story starter:
Aunt Petunia always had warned Jamie to get home before the moon rises. Why? He had never been sure. Maybe some old world superstition that all the bad spirits were out at night. He didn’t know.
Anyway, one Monday he was late on his way home and it wasn’t his fault. It was all Jenkins’ fault. Jenkins had it in for him ever since he gave the teacher’s son a bloody nose for saying something about Jamie’s mum. It may have been true but that still didn’t give the kid the right. So Jenkins had given Jamie a detention for getting one question wrong in Science. One question! So Jamie found himself at the corner of Church Street by the church yard wondering if he should cut across. It would save him a good half-hour. Problem was church yards were definitely places you would find one of Aunt Petunia’s bad spirits.

What is Write – 30?
Write – 30 is a daily activity where you write non-stop for twenty minutes then check and edit your work for 10 minutes. You will be asked to write about different subjects and in different forms.

The writing should be done on lined paper in pencil if possible. Edit and check the work in pen. If you don’t have paper and pencil, use what you can. Even a computer.

Finding it difficult? What you can do to help:

  • Always sit/work in the same place
  • Always use the same writing tools
  • Always turn the TV off
  • No talking – it distracts thinking
  • Always listen to the same piece of classical music when writing.
  • Always set yourself a goal: count the number of words. Try to beat that number the following day.
