The Storyteller - the wit and wisdom of Frank Coughlin

Writing Suggestions and Examples


For your first week
Write about yourself.
1) What kind of Writer are you? What kind of writer do you want to be? Who is your audience?
2) Pretend you are the main character of a story -
what is your detective name? Are you a hero, heroine, or anti-hero? Are you a regular person who has something unusual happen to you?
3) Take a story you already know (i.e. The Wizard of Oz) and make yourself one of the characters. How does this change the story?
