  • How can I create a Rough Draft?
  • Start at the beginning of your story
  • Describe an event/topic/character
  • Start at the end and work backwards
  • Use paragraphs, poetry, dialogue, etc.

48
  • Be selective in the ideas that you include.
     You don't have to include everything that was in
    your prewriting!  Pick your best ideas.  Make
    sure they relate to each other and your topic.
  • WRITE!  WRITE!  WRITE! Don't stop once you start
    writing.  Revising and editing come later.  Just
    let the ideas flow.  
  • Don't count words, dont ask how long it should
    be or when it is done.  When YOU feel that you
    have completed your ideas, you are then ready to
    go to the next stage.

My Example

    other people how cool it is.
  • New Orleans feels heavy and sultry in the summer
    because the humidity is so high.
  • It looks like a constant party and parade all
    rolled into one with costumes and crazy clothing.
  • The smells of Cajun food fill your nose, spicy
    rice with shrimp and gator bites.
  • The food tastes like a party in your mouth. The
    poboy sandwiches are warm and delicious.
  • You can hear the sounds of friends calling from
    balconies and shops trying to get your business.
  • One of the most important things about New
    Orleans is that it is haunted, maybe by ghosts or
    just memories.
  • You can take a tour to learn about odd people who
    have lived there like an old noble duke who used
    to serve bottled blood at his parties and pretend
    it was wine.

    knife to save on the wash time and put in the pb
    and then the j. this is a crime in some families,
    a federal offense. So be sure you check with the
    boss of the kitchen before you attempt this.

  • Cat's diary Day 983 of my captivity. My captors
    continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling
    objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while
    the other inmates and I are fed hash or some sort
    of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for
    the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must
    eat something in order to keep up my strength.
    The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of
    escape. In an attempt to disgust them, I once
    again vomit on the carpet. Today I decapitated a
    mouse and dropped its headless body at their
    feet. I had hoped this would strike fear into
    their hearts, since it clearly demonstrates what
    I am capable of. However, they merely made
    condescending comments about what a "good little
    hunter" I am. There was some sort of assembly
    of their accomplices tonight. I was placed in
    solitary confinement for the duration of the
    event. However, I could hear the noises and smell
    the food. I overheard that my confinement was due
    to the power of "allergies." I must learn what
    this means, and how to use it to my advantage.
    Today I was almost successful in an attempt to
    assassinate one of my tormentors by weaving
    around his feet as he was walking. I must try
    this again tomorrow -- but at the top of the
    stairs. I am convinced that the other prisoners
    here are flunkies and snitches. The dog
    receives special privileges. He is regularly
    released - and seems to be more than willing to
    return. He is obviously brainwashed. The bird has
    got to be an informant. I observe him communicate
    with the guards regularly. I am certain that he
    reports my every move. My captors have arranged
    protective custody for him in an elevated cell,
    so he is safe. For now ....

Class Sample

    instead of eating that gross café food that the
    kids get. I think Ill sit down in my nice chair
    and have a nap.

    stupid old Principal has no idea what Im about
    to do.

  • 12 pm I need to go to the Café and control
    these children so they wont get in a fight. I am
    so hungry. I want a nice sandwich to eat. Maybe I
    should lose some weight. That kid just got
    punched in the face. Now I get to give a
    detention.
  • 2 pm Hallelujah, I get to go home. I didnt
    give enough detentions. It was a usual day. But
    the food fight was horrible, I got food all over
    me.
  • Class Rebels Day

    Im listening to my ipod on the way into class.

    for today. Im going to put a tack on a teachers
    seat and what else can I do to annoy them?
  • 12 pm This kid is really getting on my nerves.
    I should punch him in the face. I am going to
    steal a cookie for some sugar before I start a
    food fight. This is going to be fun.

    collect money. What a great day. I should do this

    could just kick out these troublemakers.

    started it. I got hit in the face with a
    hamburger and then a chicken wing. I was so glad
    that now I have a chance to kick him out. I feel

    clean it up.
  • 2 pm I feel relieved at the end of the day
    because the little rats have left for the day.
    After work I will go home and cry myself to
    sleep. I have to also send a text message to my
    grandma.
  • Class Rebels Day
  • 8 am I head to school, after planning the most
    horrible day for the principal. I dont
    understand why hes always watching. I arrive
    late because I felt like it. I had to stop for a
    2 for 2 McMuffin deal.
  • 10 am I hate that teacher. I decided to
    decorate her desk for her with some colorful
    language. Ill just add that detention to the
    pile I dont care. I am working on a world
    record.
  • Noon At lunch I yelled out, food fight
    because I saw that kid I dont like and I threw a
    chicken wing at him. That kid tried to eat it
    then threw it again and it hit Mr. Principal.
