View or print a transcript of the video.

For this task you’ll be analyzing the uniqueness of authorial voice and setting within a story located in the Gutenberg website. But you’ll also have an opportunity to upload an audio file of you reading a select passage from your fictional story.

By this stage in the story writing process, you have a solid understanding of the plot trajectory, character motivation, story goal, and the overall substance, for the most part, of your writing style. And by “style” or authorial voice, we are referring to those stylistic and language conventions that are starting to characterize your writing. And consider why this is so important. To a large degree, we are all individual and unique in how we compose our work, either formally or creatively. Whether you realize it or not, these unique authorial conventions have already started to appear in your story. This milestone’s writing is your opportunity to isolate them and analyze why in fact they are so important in your writing.

In addition, consider the strength of setting in your story. Is it lending itself to the overall story intrigue? Or is it simply functioning as little more than a backdrop?

Lastly, you have the opportunity to experience reading your work out loud. Doing so allows you to listen for the pacing of your story and its overall storytelling effectiveness.
