In Your World of Make-Believe

We read stories everyday that takes us to a world of make-believe. Sometimes the story takes us to a far off land where boys never grow up, like in "Peter Pan" or tumbling down a rabbit's hole to have tea, like in "Alice in Wonderland."

Have you ever wondered how the author creates their stories? Many times they are from a dream they had or an event that really happened. The author takes that dream or event and places make-believe characters that remind them of someone they knew that was in the dream or at the event.

Today write your story from your own make-believe world. Not sure what to write about? Here are a couple of ideas. Pretend that a porcupine is doing the laundry at your house. Write about what happens while the porcupine does the laundry. Another idea, pretend a watermelon seed is growing from the drain in your bathtub. Write about what happens.

Don't forget to share your story with me or with a friend or two!

Happy writing!
