Alex Lidell, author of new fantasy novel, Cadet of Tildor visited the MSMS Learning Commons last week. She introduced her book and explained to 6th and 7th grade students the process of writing a novel, getting published, and developing a story that people would want to read. Alex’s presentation was engaging and friendly and she developed a nice report with the students.
In addition to the presentation, Alex invited students to write their own 3 sentence story. Each story needed to have the three critical parts to any story: 1. Inciting Incident 2. Climax 3. Resolution. Check out the stories from MSMS students below. Also look for Alex’s comments.
1. It took me weeks of searching, but I finally found the girl from the “MISSING” posters, the girl with the sky blue eyes and the blond hair as soft as sunlight, and rescued her from her kidnappers.
2. “My father has money” she tells me. “He’s make you rich if you just take me home.” – But I just know someday she’ll learn to like it here.
