Write a 10-15 page double-spaced, rough draft of your own short story, using the James Baldwin and Matthew Derby short stories you read as models, and considering James Baldwin’s talk, “The Artist’s Struggle for Integrity.”
–Focus on developing the setting, character, dialogue, and plot elements in your rough draft and outline. As you write, think about how you want your readers to visualize what is happening in your story — use descriptive, precise language to help your readers imagine what you are imagining.
–You may also incorporate a fairy tale or folktale element — for example, maybe one of the characters enjoys writing fairytales, or has a grandparent who enjoys telling folktales.
Create a story based on the plot in the document
