Planning Your Myth

Create a myth of your own that explains how clouds are formed. Think of a time when clouds greatly affected your life, perhaps were a cause of fear for you, or a time you were absolutely overwhelmed by their beauty. Use this memory as a springboard for planning your story. You are already using one of the ingredients needed to create a myth - imagination! Use the following planner to create your myth before using the writing process to complete a final copy.
