Story in a week- Day 5

c2d83039-5e04-4ee6-a337-89e9d86023a0

Write a short story in seven days

Follow our step-by-step programme to produce a finished, edited piece of creative writing in a week.

You can write a story of your own choosing or if you’d prefer set guidelines, we suggest a story between 2,000 and 2,500 words on one of the following themes: a journey; the moment that changed everything; an encounter with a stranger.

 

Day 5. Writing time: The end in sight

Today is another writing day. Read through what you wrote yesterday and, again following your plot points, write your story though to the end.

By the end of today you will have a first draft of your story.

Now you’ve got that far, what are you going to title it?
