Below is a photo of my fireplace mantle. Pick a character (or two or three) and write a scene or story that features them. As you create your scene remember to create a setting for your characters to move around in, some action for them to perform, maybe even a conflict for them to resolve, and dialogue to facilitate their interaction with each other.

I am an author, speaker, and high school writing teacher/librarian. I love to read, write, and encourage others. I write poetry, retell folktales, and pen folkloric and historical fantasy novels for both middle grade readers and adults. My mission is to write entertaining fiction full of magic and heart, and to encourage my readers to wonder, marvel, and follow their dreams. An avid reader of fantasy--for all ages, I also love historical fiction, and my latest favorite genre is historical mystery, although I could never imagine trying to write one! Here at Literate Lives, I blog about many aspects of pursuing a literate lifestyle in our high speed world. I hope, in my own small way, I can help parents, teachers, and writers nurture a reading/writing lifestyle in both home and school. View all posts by Debby Zigenis-Lowery
