I am a fan of reading and writing, I read in my free time and like to write. However as I’ve begun to take harder classes, gotten a job and been playing tennis, my free time has decreased and I haven’t written or read much.

The requirement were that we had five days in our story and we had set events that had to happen for each day, the whole story also had to take place on an island. I was frustrated that it limited my creativity until I found a way to work around it a bit better. Instead of only having the required scene in each day I added in it to something else that happened that I made up. By making plenty of other things happen as well I was able to make my story flow a bit better and I was able to enjoy it more because I got to express my creativity and my own ideas. I was able to work my own ideas into this very restricted template and had a great time writing my Island Narrative, so much so that I worked on it for hours at home every night and ended up with 29 pages and over 10,000
