Plan a story about an outsider

Think back to the two stories we have looked at: ‘Eric’ and ‘The Island’. If you need a reminder, you can click on the links below.


The Island

What do these stories have in common? They are about characters who are outsiders.

The setting is as important as the main character as this is what the character experiences. They don’t fit into the setting they have entered.

You will be writing your own outsider story this week.

Look at this sheet Our stories: things to ponder. By thinking about these questions, you will be planning a new story.

Look at the Planning Grid or choose to plan your story using a different layout you are more comfortable with. You should aim to include some useful adverbials of time or place to act as reminders when you come to write your story.

If possible, read your story plan and then talk their story through with someone else. Discuss the ending that you have planned for your character. How will things turn out for your character? Check it is well thought out.
