This contains reproducible handouts for two different excellent creative fiction writing exercises. These work very well for high school students who are interested in today's violent fiction (creepy, vampires, werewolves, etc.), while still building their writing and descriptive skills. These exercises support the common core by focusing the students in on the use of every word or phrase to accomplish their descriptive writing goals. It does usually take several class periods for students to complete exercises such as this well.
