Student Writer Instructions:
Have you ever had to work or play or just be with someone you didn't agree with? What happens in your brain? The book Enemy Pie takes you through the thinking of a young boy who has a conflict with his friend and who plans his revenge. His thoughts are unique and funny, and so is the story. Could you write about having a conflict with someone in just as unique and fun a way?
Press the buttons below to choose ideas for your own original story, based on the ideas from Enemy Pie. You will be the narrator of your story. Pressing the first button below will give you ideas for a character that you will have a disagreement with. Pressing the second button will give you ideas for topics to disagree over.
When you write your original story, use some but not too much dialogue. Instead, focus your story on the inner thoughts and schemes of you--the narrator. How creative can you be? How can you include interesting and memorable details? And can your story end as well as Derek Munson did with Enemy Pie?
