Edgar Allan Poe Writing Assignment: due Friday, Jan. 17

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

Write three paragraphs in Poe’s “Stream of Consciousness” writing style.  You have two options for this assignment.  You can write about:

  1. A time when you were terribly afraid.  This fear can be rational or irrational, fictional or true. 
  2. A time when you acted in a devious and deceitful way, like the narrator of Tell Tale Heart.  What were the justifications going through your head as you were acting in a dishonest or immoral manner? 

Don’t think too much about the first draft – just let the words flow from your head and onto the paper.
