1. Short Story Creation
You will create a minimum four page short story that uses your “Mirror Criteria” and elements such as proper dialogue, inner monologue, sensory detail, and other showing vs. telling techniques.
2. Sentence Stealing
You notice a complex sentence in your chosen short story and the way it is constructed is challenging, yet fascinating. Construct your two of your own versions of this sentence for your short story, writing the original sentence as an appendix to your story with endnotes indicated where you mirrored sentences appear. Your mirrored sentences should use the original sentence’s exact punctuation and phrasing.
3. Short Story Analysis
The writing of your analysis paragraphs from Assignment III will be assessed here. The quotes used should be properly integrated into the paragraph using MLA citations and the title of the story should be cited properly.
