    Hey, we have to do our creative writing controlled assessment for English Language soon and I don't have a clue about what to write it about😁
    We were given three themes and we have to base our story on either of these; Change, Loneliness / Isolation and Character

    We also need to think of a title and a potential plot, would any of these ideas work and if so, which is best?

    1. Someone gets injured in a car crash and becomes paralysed
    2. A man who was abandoned by his family in an old home when he was a child, and he turns evil
    3. An ordinary girl who suddenly discovers that she's a princess

    The last one is really cringey😂 But please feel free to give me any suggestions or pick some of these!

    Hey! I guess I'm good to go with advice..(I recieved an A* with the theme Disappointment on this!)

    Your choices are good! The second option really intrigued me so I think you should consider that one! It's something I'd personally read and it's mysterious so I think you'd get a high grade if you write it well! With the other two options I feel you wouldn't reach those high grades so I'd suggest the second option because it sounds unique!

    If you can't really write something for them, I personally did a piece on my own personal experience. I picked Disappointment and did a piece where I was disappointed over my Dad going to hospital. I didn't think it was good enough but after writing it I felt confident. If you have the will and determination you can pick out any of those options and recieve a high grade as long as you write well! I added in heaps of different writing techniques like repetition and alliteration!

    But I personally love your second option a lot! I'd suggest you do that one but in the end you're the one writing the piece so pick whichever you feel more comfortable writing Hope it all goes great and you find an idea

    Wow that is so good!! Thanks, I think that I will go for the second one, although it's different to what I usually write about, it intrigues me!

    Thank you so much for your advice!😊

    I personally like the idea of the first one. You could include some real raw emotion and loads of language techniques such as metaphors, sensory imagery etc. You could really set the scene and make the examiner empathise with your character.

    I agree! Both the first and second could get you great grades!
