Write either the opening or closing scene of a short story in which you build up suspense using the techniques from today’s lesson. Make your reader (me!) feel uneasy, nervous and even downright afraid.
You should aim for at least one page but this should contain a variety of sentence structures, with the syntax varied for interest and effect; you should also use a range of punctuation with sustained accuracy.
Please bring your writing to our next lesson on Friday 18 October. Contact me in advance if you need help with this task.
