Now that you have a basic understanding of the task, let’s see how we begin drafting our response.
Since this task requires us to draw upon our author’s text, its common to do the following in your own creative response
– Fill in a gap in the author’s stories
– Describe what happens before or after the author’s story
– Use the author’s writing style (themes, ideas, motifs or literary techniques) to generate a new piece
And of course there are many more options, and you can also combine many options together. You may find it helpful to draft the basic storyline of your piece by thinking of the themes and ideas that you want to express. Then after you have the main outline done, it will be much easier to then add in the stylistic features and other elements.
