This project will be fun! After reading The Time Machine, we want you to create your own short story. It should contain all of the elements of a short story including exposition, rising action, climax, resolution, and falling action or denouement.
Your story must include some element of time travel. You are allowed to move forward or backward in time. You may write in the first person or in the third person. However, you need to make your choice consistent throughout your story.
Your story needs to reflect that you spent a significant amount of time crafting it. You are aiming to turn in a completely polished piece of writing. You are writing to entertain!
For your reference a short story is generally no shorter than 1000 words and no longer than 20,000 words. Aim for a word length within those parameters.
