The Story Starter allows students to fully develop a character, setting, and supporting characters before formally writing a creative writing piece. Imagine knowing a character intimately: his likes and dislikes, what he values. Then knowing where this person goes to school and the path he takes to get to the baseball field. Once a person's and his world is known, creating a problem or struggle is natural.
