English 412R

Respond in writing, in a note to yourself:

  • If you are writing something for your portfolio that is in anyway fantastic, how might you apply what this chapter suggests? For example, what reasonable desire might you give an astonishing character? What normalizing category of details can you add to a fantastic setting?
  • If you are writing something for your portfolio that is intended to be extremely realistic, how night you too apply what this chapter suggests? What could you watch for to prevent an inadvertent weirdness?

Our reading for today mentions tone or style. Consider these examples of how one author alters his style. Then, similarly, draft something very short, and alter its style dramatically, twice.
