Once Upon a Time – Week 6

Welcome back to my creative writing lessons. This is the sixth lesson, which means we are creeping closer to the end. Only three more lessons are left.

I hope you have enjoyed the previous five. Enough of the pleasantries. Let’s dive right into your next lesson.

This week you will write down a story that you have been told.

You will recount any story that anybody has ever told you. This could be a story that a parent or a grandparent has told that happen years ago, or it could be something recent that a friend a family member has told you.

This could also be a story that you told while in school or from a book that you have read about something that has happened in the past. This could be an educational, fun, or sad story. The important thing is that it is entertaining and engaging.

The main thing that all readers love is stories. They like to relate to the lives and experiences of other people. When you add stories to your writings you will humanize you writing and take your readers along on a journey.

That’s it for this week. Stay tuned for lesson seven.


You never have to change anything you got up in the middle of the night to write. – Saul Bellow
