Write Like the Wind
Tell the story of the single most frightening, most confusing, or most unbelievable thing (or all three, if you want to be ambitious) that has ever happenened to you.|
Things to keep in mind:
* Avoid saying or explaining how you felt. Instead, focus on what you did, said, saw and heard (and smelled or tasted, if those senses are appropriate).
* Tell your story as directly, as simply, and as straightforwardly as possible. Don't try to add any extra atmosphere or emotions, or any other embellishments. Avoid tricks or gimmicks. Simply show exactly what happened to you.
* If you wish, you may write the piece in the third person, with "he" or "she" as the subject instead of "I". You may even make up a character to be your protagonist if you like, but the story must still be a substantially true account of something that happened to you, and your character must behave much or entirely as you did in that situation.
