Morning Message: 

I am really looking forward to you writing your ‘short’ realistic fiction stories today. I think we have had enough rehearsals and tweaking of our plans. Have you found this helpful? Why, why not? Did you find it helpful to listen to yourself telling your story? Why, why not? What other strategies do you find helpful as authors?
