Class started out with us writing short stories and a few scholars shared their stories to the class. We discussed what can help improve our writing. The way the tone and expressions are presented in the our writing and reading is important. It is important to draw in your reader and from them to make a connection to your writing.
Along with the importance of tone and expression we also discussed the word choice, imagination, and imagery. Without these things your audience won’t be engaged in the writing. Especially imagery, which helps create images throughout your writing and which your reader can become more interested and hooked on to the story. And presenting a problem in your story. Creating mystery in the beginning of the story helps keeps the reader draw into the story cause they want to know how the problem is solved.
We learned the five cannons. These five cannons are important because they revolve around invention, style, memory, and delivery, the key important things that can help improve your stories . Invention is brainstorming what to write about, what would interest people to read your story. Arrangement of words is very important because it needs to present a way that is easy for the audience to read it. With arrangement you can go back an edit and move words around to make the story more interesting. How you write reflects your style. The style of your writing is important because it does reflect you and who is interested in your writing. Memory is just memorizing what you have said within the writing that there’s no need for you to look back. Delivery, is the tone and expression, like I said is important because it draws in the reader.
