You have homework? And you have to write a story? Yes, that can be pretty stressful, but there are a lot of things you can write about. Just pick something.
Oh. That is a problem. Well, you just have to be creative. What’s making it so hard to get started?
UGH. The blank piece of paper. Yuck. That is one of the biggest creative blocks I know. Who can think with all of that blankness sucking in every idea like a black hole. We’ll just have to make it a little less blank. Let’s try doodling.
Why not start by doodling a few of your favorite buildings.
And then make it a little more exciting by adding a monster and a space alien.
Now just let your mind wander and go abstract. A few shapes and squiggles.
How about doodling your favorite animal… the three toed sloth?
That’s great! Um…Jeffrey, you didn’t draw the sloth with his hands on his hips. That’s strange.
Uh oh, Jeffrey. You’re doodle is moving. And the only thing worse than a doodle that moves, is a doodle that moves with attitude! Good luck with your story! I think you’re going to need it!
