Thats true... cz so many ppl hv similar stories...f3nr15 said:Quote from one of the English teachers of my school who recently marked our assessment on a creative writing task:
"clichéd stories don't necessarily disadvantage you ... the secret is the way the story is written"
That was from the feedback sheet. I got 10/15, many responses were 7-9 and some were 11/15.!!Chocoholic!!! said:Thats true... cz so many ppl hv similar stories...
The way u describe ur characters and situations is more imp than the story itself
Apparently the best story written was about adoption.ellen.louise said:Do not write about: ... finding out you were adopted
One of the responses featured that.ellen.louise said:Do not write about: ... unrequited love
The teacher marking the assessment quoted on her feedback sheet, 'and Billy got hit a car and died', triggered a chain reaction of laughter among the whole class.ellen.louise said:DO NOT kill off your character
Fair enough...f3nr15 said:That was from the feedback sheet. I got 10/15, many responses were 7-9 and some were 11/15.
But the teacher wrote she understands I am trying to convey a sense of discovery and I had effective use of language but the discovery must have a deeper impact.
