Free Advice

Pretend you have a website where you give wise advice to readers who write you about their problems. Use the main character from the story and write a letter which describes his or her problem. Reply with your advice.

Detective’s Insights

Pretend you have been hired to follow the main character in the story and figure out why he or she is going places, saying and doing things over the period of time. Set your writing up to look like the following log:

Observed Activity (places or people visited, comments overheard, things done, etc.) Comments (Your judgments or conclusions about his or her motives, values, or lifestyle, etc.)

Imagined Dialogue

Pick two characters from the story who never speak. They could be characters that do not know each other in the story or perhaps are just from different parts of the story. Write a dialogue of what they might say to one another.
