Starring: Zack, Jason, Derrick, Angel
One day, I was looking out the window thinking of a good story to write, but I couldn't get any ideas. I decided to talk to Angel about it. "Angel!" I called "Can you help me with my story?" "Uhhhhhh... Did you use Ideas and Content?" "Ifleas and Bontenck?"I said, tongue-twisted. "No silly, Ideas and Content. You know, when you have a good topic and clear paper. Do you know about Organization?" "Yes I do! The one when your paper is organized and well thought. When it has a beginning, middle and end." I replied. "Good! Well I gotta go eat my spicy taco so we'll have to speak later, got it?" he said "Gotcha!" And I went to Derrick's house for more tips.
When I arrived at Derrick's house he was sitting down playing his PS2. I said "Derrick, can you help me with my story? I asked Angel for help earlier but I'm going to need more help." Derrick turned off his PS2 and got down to business. "Well, do you know about voice? he said. "Yeah, sort of. It's when you make your voice stand out through the words in a way." "Right, but I think you forgot the parts about it being understandable. Also you must know Word Choice. That's when your words fit along with your topic. I'm getting bored. I'm playing the PS2. See ya!" That's when I decided to go visit Jason's house.
When I arrived at Jason's he had plenty of tips for me. "Well, well, well. Look who finally got here. I know what you came to talk to me about." "How?" I asked. "I know all... and Derrick and Angel told me. You must hear about the last two traits of writing. First, Sentence Fluency. This is when your sentences are bountiful of fresh details and good words. Instead of using a lot, use multitudes! Next up is Conventions. They may not stand out but if you don't use Conventions, your story would be horrible. Like, don't use titles that don't go with your story and be sure to use spaces, commas, semicolons, and all those others where they are needed. Darrin's calling, bye!
I rushed home and got to my story. I was done so fast that my hands almost fell off. I showed it to my friends after I was done. The 6 traits helped my story become from a horrible one to a spectacular one. My story was organized, had good details, and the words really stood out.
So you see? By using the six traits, you can make a good story like above.
