Theme Week: Friendship

Another theme week, this time about one of my favourite things in the world and in fiction: FRIENDSHIP!

The week from May, 9th to the 15th is going to be Friendship Week, which includes 2 new posts (Friendship Dynamics, How to write friendships), 3 friendship-themed single prompts and reblogs of my posts about friends so far.

All of the new posts for this week are already up for members on my Ko-fi.

I hope you have a wonderful week and get inspired to write some really strong friendships!

Your writing will always feel awkward to you, because you wrote it.

Your plot twists will always feel predictable, because you created them.

Your stories will always feel a bit boring to you, because you read them a million times.

They won’t feel like that for your reader.

Writing is like – let’s find out where the story will go, because I, the author, don’t know. I like my stories to surprise me.

Prompt #869

“Sometimes I just don’t know why I decided to be your friend.”

“Oh, when did you decide that?”

Writing Reminders

  • Create whole new worlds every day
  • Write that trope you want to write
  • Give your WIPs a rest, you can always come back to them
  • Drop a WIP if it just doesn’t feel right
  • Write as slow or as fast as you need to
  • Ignore that writing advice if it doesn’t work for you
  • Create characters that are a mix of all your own insecurities and personality traits
  • Create characters that are nothing like you
  • Don’t get discouraged by other people’s writing
  • Seek inspiration from every place you can get it
  • Write that imperfect first draft, you’ll make it beautiful later
  • Writing is a wonderful thing to do, so do what makes you happy

Every writer has that one story that they don’t even intend to write down anymore, but that is forever stuck in their brain.

Let that WIP in your folder become a short story. Don’t feel pressured to create three part novels out of every idea you have. Let the story tell you how much space it needs to play out.

OTHELLO CREATIVE WRITING ACTIVITIES: IDEAL SUB PLANS!

Writing, acting, debating, plus eye candy for classroom decor- this High school Othello bundle has it all, for 30% off. A bargain Bardic bundle indeed!15 Writing GamesThese 15 fun writing games and activities will not only help foster a creative approach to Othello, but also keep your students happy

Description

These 15 fun writing prompts, games and activities will not only help foster a creative approach to Shakespeare’s Othello, but also keep your students happy and engaged during even dire emergencies, such as when you need a sub plan. These activities do not require adult assistance for the students to be successful. Twelve of the activities are for individual students to perform alone: three require a small group.
The found poetry, one pager, and dice roll story will occupy a considerable portion of three classes, and a simple rubric is included should you wish to use these activities for marks. Most of the other activities in this package are more suited to a spare 10 minutes or so at the end of the class, or even as bellringers. A DOZEN of these fun smaller activities will keep them happily occupied. These dozen activities, like the one pager, can be used with ANY book. Only the found poetry, dice roll story and anagrams are particular to this play.
Most of these activities are no-prep- just project the activities onto your screen or write the instructions on the board and fun immediately awaits! The only activities that need to be photocopied are the found poetry activity (two sheets for each student) and the one pager. In the found poetry exercise, the students take the perspective of Iago at the end of the play and make him reveal the truth (a difficult concept for Shakespeare’s’ greatest villain!) about his motives.

Othello Creative Piece

The dark clouds swirled around the sky, angry faces seemed to emerge, taunting, laughing as his misfortune. The many emotions of the crowd that gathered, some horrified, but most seemed to be content, as this course of action was suited for a monster. Iago’s eyes glazed over, memories, those that he rather to forget, seems to be creeping back to him, against his wishes, but after all, wishes are only for the good and kind, not for a monster like him.

Iago was dragged around, like nothing more than a sack of potatoes, the chains were digging into his skin and blistering rashes formed around it, nothing is like the agony of not being able to scratch it. With a grunt, the warden kicked him in the abdomen, the air knocked out of his lungs, as he sat coughing and spluttering, the warden laughed mercilessly,

“Now thou know where thee belongs”.

Iago remained motionless, he would not give the warden anymore pleasure of taunting him. This course of action however invoked another kick to the guts and he slumped to the ground, before the cell clashed close. Disregarding the pain, he immediately stood back up, grabbing the bars of the cell he roared, “Thee can’t doth this to me, I hest to beest alloweth out!”

As echo of his voice started to fade, so did the footsteps, Iago knew it was pointless now, he was in most secure prison in Venice, along with the most dangerous of criminals, and was home of mostly death row inmates, and Iago was to be sentenced to death in 2 weeks.

Iago laid on the cold concrete floor, the rancid smell of dead rats fills his nostrils, the putrid smell is almost strong enough to knock him out but Iago is determined not to stray into despair. After all, if he were to die he would at least be executed with his dignity, and not like some spineless commoner. Although his
