Pop Bottle Pollution

Hi Kristi, It sounds like the rules to your assignment are pretty flexible. Which is great when you need some creative wiggle room! My first suggestion, take something you're interested in, like a hobby or a future aspiration, (like you want to win a gold medal in the Olympics, or visit a distant country,) and try to imagine a story with that as the basis. So you can write about yourself and what it might be like, or you can come up with a fictional character. It doesn't have to be realistic! :) Another suggestion, think about a memory or an experience that really stands out in your mind. It can be a happy memory, or not so much. Whatever inspires you, write about that. You can stick true to the experience, or you can take some creative liberties and change it to make the story more interesting. Remember, you can always take inspiration from a short story someone else has written, just don't plagiarize! I hope this helps! I'd love to read whatever you come up with. :)
