Journal Activity 2.1 A:
Prewriting: What Makes a Good Story

write an evaluative essay in your journal. In this essay you'll state your opinion of a short story from this textbook or a movie you've seen and then support your opinion.

You'll write down your criteria for what makes a good story.
The textbook suggests making a cluster diagram, but you can just make a list.
You may find it useful to use a different font or text style for related ideas -- you can do this as you write or later when you read over your list.

PLEASE HELP IDK WHAT TO DO.
