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:
- A time when you were terribly afraid. This fear can be rational or irrational, fictional or true.
- 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.
