Welcome back! To celebrate your return, here are three fun tasks for you to complete.

1) Write a short story on your blog called “Why People Should Be Jealous of My Holidays” (if you had a good break) or “Why No-one Would Be Jealous of My Holidays” (if you didn’t).

2) Write a paragraph reviewing a friend’s mini-novel. You all should have read at least one other novel but if you haven’t you can do so now. Your review will need the following:

  1. A description of what happens in the novel. Who are the main characters? What are they like?
  2. What you liked about it.
  3. What you think the writer could improve. (Be constructive – think what you would like to hear had you written the novel.)

3) Write another post explaining how you are going to change your novel for its second draft. What areas do you think need work?
