Today we're going to practice some writing. You've been brainstorming a lot about your characters and the world they live in, as well as the conflicts they might face. Now it's time to think about the specific spaces where they spend a lot of their time.

Here is our agenda:
  1. Read about Larry's apartment. I'll show you this in a minute. 
  2. Practice writing a setting for your novel in your English Journal. 
  3. Paste your example into Socrative and look at what your peers wrote. 
Homework: After reading some of your peers examples, spend some time tonight improving your own description. How can you add more sensory details? You do not have to rewrite it, just revise. Also, double check your homophones: they're/their/there or which/witch or others like it.
