Q1. Revise the draft2 and submit the final draft.

1. Serious effort at revision, which means more than simply correcting grammar issues. We’ve been doing quite a few revision exercises so I’m sure there are some significant changes (in character, in tension, in your scenes, in structure) from the first to final draft.

2. Make sure you’ve incorporated the tools we’ve been discussing: something needs to be at-stake; sensory details; a clear, resonant setting; your character needs to have attempted a kind of change; in order to have tension there needs to be urgency and obstacles.

3. Make sure you’ve checked your grammar, punctuation, spelling, and have correctly formatted dialogue. I know the module won’t let you indent very easily so don’t worry so much about that if you can’t do it.
