What Do I Know?
I know that fantasy stories have elements that are fake. Some examples of fiction writing are the Harry Potter books, the Percy Jackson books, and most Roald Dali books. Most fantasy books have some sort of mystery or action in the plot. Most of the fake elements are of the author's creation, like different worlds, spells, etc. I also know from 2 passion time projects about writing that time management is key.
What Did I Learn?
I found out that my time management skills aren't great. I struggled to progress much at school and ended up doing most of it at home. I now know to not challenge myself to the extreme, but to the next level. I also learned that creating suspense in writing pieces makes a great addition. Another technique I used in my writing was making names and spells in Sundanese, a language spoken by very little people. It brought a mysterious element to the story.
What Do I Want To Know?
I want to know what my peers like about fantasy stories. I also wonder if it is easy to come up with a vocabulary for fantastical elements. Another thing I will surely find out during this project is how to give different characters personality
What Action Did I Take?
I wrote a fiction story using elements of fiction stories my peers enjoy and make a video reading it.
How Will I Find Out?
By making a fictional story using aspects of fiction stories my peers enjoy and make a video reading it. I will also use my knowledge of fiction stories and plots.
What Questions Do I Still Have?
I wonder if I could have modified my project to make it less complex for me. Also, I wonder if any of my classmates would like my story.
I don't know why I keep on doing projects way to ambitious for the time I have. I always end up thinking about writing a long story. I now know that before starting a project I need to think: Can I do this in 10 hours? Other than that, this project did push my creativity to the extreme. I loved coming up with spells and what they do. It was also fun to choose names for different things and turn them into incomprehensible Sundanese words. I want to give my story a more official ending over the summer, which will give me something to do for a few weeks!
