  • Writer’s Workshop: Copy this excerpt, then tell me what “works” about it. Is it good, compelling, descriptive? Why?
    • “Calpurnia was something else…She was all angles and bones; she was nearsighted; she squinted; her hand was as wide as a bed slat and twice as hard…Our battles were epic and one-sided – Calpurnia always won. She had been with us ever since Jem was born, and I had felt her tyrannical presence as long as I could remember.”
    • – from To Kill a Mockingbird, p. 6

  • Writer’s Workshop: Carefully read this sentence from Sherlock Holmes. Make an observation about 1) Diction 2) Syntax 3) Imagery and 4) Tone
    • Watson's response to Holmes's reasoning is like that of a man who's just had a magician's trick explained to him: it all seems so clear after an explanation… though otherwise you'd never be able to guess how it's done. Conan Doyle repeats this formula many times to remind the reader that Holmes is always many steps ahead of everyone around him.
