    Hi I'm an AS college student who is really struggling to begin a 500-800 word creative writing piece.

    The two novels I am studying are Catcher in the Rye and Huckleberry Finn and our theme is 'Escape'.

    I have completed a comparative piece but am completely at a loss as to what I'm supposed to be doing for my Creative one.
    All the information I've been given is that it needs to be in the style of one of the books and that it should reflect the theme in some form.

    Have been staring at a blank word document feeling like an utter moron for the past hour because I'm so clueless :'(
    Someone help me!! Advice/suggestions would be much appreciated!!

    Everyone works differently with getting stuff like this started. I find it helps to just write about a character, give a back story, draw a picture, make them as realistic as possible, then the story writes itself because you know what the character would do in any situation you come up with.

    I think you'll score points for picking up on colloquial language most
