Reflect on the last few weeks. Make a list of things that happened (5 – 7 things should do) that didn’t seem that important at the time. Did you get a new pair of shoes? Did you make a meal for your family? Did you and your friends go to the mall?
Once you have the list, choose one of those moments. Create a story arc (exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, resolution) in which that moment is the climax of the story.
Make sure you love the moment you pick, because you will be writing a whole short story about it!!
