Be a time traveler! Choose your favorite period in history (ancient Greece, medieval Spain, the Gold Rush–wherever and whenever you like). Think of 3 features that will help your reader know they are in that place and time (like the food, the buildings, the bathroom arrangements…) Then decide who is telling the story. Is it a prince or a pauper? Is it someone just like you, but in a different time? Now, write a 3 paragraph short story from your character’s perspective using those 3 features.
