Creative writing starts with writing practice. This is by definition a pastime whereby a person just settles down in front of a blank sheet of paper and starts writing without any specific goal in mind as to the purpose of the resulting literature.
Literacy co-ordinator and ideas magpie Kate Parietti explains how she uses video, drama and real-life experiences to help students develop their creative writing skills (How to teach creative writing: http://t.co/aoCIBcg2yM)...
Middle school English language arts teacher Hassan Mansaray shares how he uses an individualized learning model, Readers and Writers Workshop, to reach his students in an expanded learning time program.
I’m working on my Happiness Project, and you could have one, too ! Everyone’s project will look different, but it’s the rare person who can’t benefit. Join in—no need to catch up, just jump in right now.

The Middle School students have been writing "Alternative Ending" or "Choose your own adventure" stories. I recently read about Twine, on Ruben R. Puentedura's Weblog. Twine is free software for Mac and Windows, which "lets you organize your story graphically with a map that you can re-arrange as you work. Links automatically appear on the map as you add them to your passages, and passages with broken links are apparent at a glance."
On the Twine web page, there are several intro videos, which I've embedded here, so you can get an idea of how it works, and decide whether or not you would like to add this software tool to your computer.
