write a short story

timer Asked: Feb 8th, 2016

Question description

Today you will write a “Rip Van Winkle” story of your own, combining Washington Irving’s story with a little H. G. Wells science fiction.

  • Start your story in the present day. Have your “Rip” suddenly appear somewhere 20 years from now. Decide how.
  • Clearly state two settings. Include dialogue if you like.
  • Decide if you will write in the first person (Using I and me) or in the third person (Using he, she, and they) to tell about the characters.
  • Choose some interesting conflicts to make your main character be like Rip.
  • Decide on a plausible reason for your main character’s sudden reappearance.
  • Decide on the changes he will experience in the world of the future.
  • Decide on any internal and external conflicts he will experience.

Nothing to fancy, just make it make sense
