  • Write the back story for Ulric the Blacksmith

Think about what may have lead him to this point? What has happened to him that makes him behave like he does?

Write the story in the 1st person. 

Write the story imagining you are one of the characters. How do you feel? What are you thinking?

  • Write in the style of a fairy tale. 

Think about the kind of language that is used in Fairy Tales. Remember the common openings and endings for Fairy Tales. Maybe you can research some Fairy Tales like The 3 Little Pigs, Cinderella or Red Riding Hood and use what you find here in your story.
