Last week we developed our own characters and had them experience their first day of grade 6. This week, you will again get to use your characters in a story but we’re going to focus on another part of the discussion that we had with Chris Tozier, dialogue! Chris said that the easiest way to make your writing more clear is to follow the conventions for writing dialogue, specifically, quotation marks around speech and a new paragraph every time a different character is speaking. For you blog post this week, I would like your character to get into an argument, either with their parent, best friend, sibling, that part is totally up to you. Be sure that their personality shines through the argument and their flaw can show up too. It can be funny, silly, serious; whatever you like but let’s practice writing dialogue!

Last week's blog post was so much fun. I had a great time making my character and thinking about what my character was going to be like. I wasn't really such a big fan of reading or of creating stuff but that was only because I got annoyed when I couldn't figure out how to start my character and how my character should be. All of the confusion of mine went away when we talked to Chris Tozier. Since he is a professional writer he knew the do's and don'ts of writing. After talking to him I spent way more time making more stuff about my character Aariyah Marin. It was so much fun and I can't wait to start writing Aaliyah's argument with her younger sister named Lily Marin!
i'm really confused, there is no quotations and it seems like they are talking.

You could have made that a little nicer.

You may need to read it from the doc because the blog post add all the right marks.

Now that I have a character created, I can have so much fun adding on to her, and making her my own! I have learned so much about developing my writing skills,thanks to Mr.Tozier!
Good Job you are such a good writer!

The Ending was not so great try making it more catchy!
4/4/2016 03:48:19 pm
That's really rude!
4/4/2016 03:59:23 pm
You could have made that a little bit more nicer because from my opinion I think Yerin did a great job.

Thank you for your comment, I will try to make a better ending next time, I was really tired while writing this, and I wanted to sleep, so I just came up with something! I will try to make it more "catchy" next time.

Last Week's blog post was creating your character and this week it is about dialogue. Mine is not two people yelling and arguing instead they are arguing over text. So here is the link to my argument!

In my last chapter my character Megan found her first friend. Her name was Stacey. She was the girl Megan talked to on the bus. Now Megan and Stacey are in a huge fight. This is how it all started...

Bach and his friends were playing outside in the summer. They were playing soccer in the soccer field.

Last weeks homework was very fun because we made our own charters. Mine was Billy power and he had to go to school after the long summer break. But if you think the first day was bad you should look at his second day.

If my character got in an arguement it would look like this:

Ding the bell went and all the students got up to go to the next class. I almost made it to the next class (which is math) but 2 of mean girls came up and started to talk to me.

Bryan T. Amazing was spending the day off at his friend, Ham's place. After resting, Ham asked Bryan if he wanted to play Super Smash Bros. with him, but Bryan wanted to play Super Mario Maker. Bryan said that he wanted to play a different game, and Ham didn't react nicely. Ham got out his malt bag (it was stale) and used it as a mace, and Bryan reacted quickly by doing that cool move in "Matrix", and luckily he avoided it, and grabbed the malt bag and threw it in the corner. Ham yelled that Bryan was a brony (which was an insult to Bryan) and then Bryan said that Ham's face looks like a Lego brick.

Last week was really fun writing the short story's for our characters in their first day of grade six. It was really fun making up my characters attitude and personality. For me the thing that was the hardest was making up a flaw for my character. I found that challenging because I wanted it to be something creative and unique but not something to crazy because then I would have trouble fitting it into my story. But even though it was challenging it was still really fun because you can make you own story how ever you want it to be.

Creating the character was really entertaining and it was fun deciding who you wanted to create with no outlines or boundaries, so when I saw that our blog post was related to our characters that we made last week I was very exited and happy so here is my argument between Donovan and his dad:
