WK6 DISCUSSION

Discussion – Week 6COLLAPSE

Purpose and Strategies for Creative Writing

Different writers approach their stories with different reasons for telling them, from entertainment to education to motivation. One thing they all have in common, however, is the consideration of the audience they wish to influence. As part of your Final Project for this course, you developed your own short story, revised it, and prepared it for publication. Depending upon your purpose for telling your story to your intended audience, some strategies may have worked well for you while others may not have. In this Discussion, you will share some of the writing strategies that you used during this process and explain why these strategies were effective.
