what did you do

I create my research plan and decided what techniques that I am going to use and if it is going to be secondary research or primary research . also it will help me with my story. Also, with Alma we were looking at fairy tales and breaking it down into the three different acts and we also had to change the fairy tale into a different character.

what did you learn

Today I learned that creating a research plan help you to answer the questions to help develop your story idea and is it suitable for your audience.

what do you need to do next

I need to use the Harvard referencing system by collecting film quotes and also create my character profiles.

Surprise:  he comes across a tower and he hears a beautiful singing voice. He instantly falls in love and is determined to find the source.

Obstacle:  The tower is too tall, so the prince tries to find a way up. He then discovers the enchantress that called the name of the girl in the tower, Rapunzel. After waiting for the enchantress to leave, the prince calls for Rapunzel. He climbs the tower.


Act 2-3

Complications: the beautiful voice he had heard did not match the face of Rapunzel. She turned out to look like a monster. The prince was scared and flees the tower. Rapunzel was actually put under a spell to deceive the prince

Climax: Forever trapped in the tower. Rapunzel waits for another prince, after many of the towers he climbs. He has always fled the towers

Resolution: after many years the curious prince comes back to the tower and discovers it is empty and only a corpse is at the bottom of the tower.
