Writing a Draft

Use this form to create your draft.
  1. In the first blank, restate the prompt as a question. (For example: Tell about a time when you were very happy... becomes, "Have you ever been really happy?")
  2. Use the next three blanks to tell your story in order. What happened first, next and last?
  3. Finally, conclude your story by restating the prompt again. (For example: "And that's what happened the day I was very happy.")
  4. When you have finished your draft, press the Submit Query button and then print your draft.
  5. Read the story. Have a friend read it.
  6. Make any needed corrections, then take the draft to the computer and word-process a final draft.
  7. Print the final draft and turn it in to the teacher.
