6.3.2 Starting to write your story
Now’s the time to begin writing your final story that you’ll share in Week 8.
Activity 6.5 Start drafting your final story
Try to write a draft of 600–750 words of your final story. Remember you are not aiming to write the perfect version immediately – you will need to edit and augment, to cut back and make additions as you develop the piece. The upper word limit will be 1000 words and it is important to bear this in mind.
Everyone reads over what they’ve written as they go and makes necessary alterations and adjustments, but try to get to the end of the draft before you move on to do any serious editing. We will get to more detailed editing advice shortly.
