day 3 // draft✨

Just today I set my students free & had them drafting characters for the short story they have to write.

Some complained.
Some were full of questions.
But all set pen/pencil to paper & started writing.

It’s amazing how a blank sheet of paper or empty organizer can turn into something so alive & real & powerful.
The most fun part of this project is that I’m drafting right alongside them with new characters emerging from my imagination.

A 12yo detective.
A 17yo con artist/thief.
A fae warrior.

All stories start somewhere.
And right now, I’m loving these drafts.
