Michael Morpurgo - How to Get into Writing

Today, we are going to create a plan for the next chapter or story inspired by The Butterfly Lion.

Story Ideas (choose one)

  1. An extra chapter for the ending. Morpurgo returns to Strawbridge and meets Bertie and The White Prince. What would they talk about? What might happen?
  2. An extra chapter for the ending. Morpurgo gets into trouble with Basher Beaumont. He is helped by The White Prince. What could the trouble be and how could the lion help him?
  3. A change in the story. What if Bertie had got lost in the veld, driving away the lion cub in the night? What dangers might he have faced? How could he be saved?
  4. A story inspired by The Butterfly Lion. What if you had an unusual pet? What could it be? How would you get it? What might go wrong? 

 

Think about the four main parts of your chapter/story:

  • Introduction
  • Build Up
  • Climax/Conflict
  • Resolution/Ending

 

I have attached an example of my plan. Don't forget to use bullet points to complete your plan!
