  1. 1. I would like to use my experience of when I composed my own song.
    2. It is easy to exaggerate because I can imagine the sounds that were in my head, I can also describe the room and the piano and how I viewed it, so there are lots of ways to exaggerate a simple experience of just composing a song.
    3. I will use my own perspective but I will exaggerate it a bit. This is because I do not usually have friends watching me and the only things in the room are the Piano and myself.
    4. Give details, describe each movement and idea slowly, provide sudden stops in between so they feel as if they want to read on, more and more.
    5. I have my memory, my friend’s memory, and I can also just re-record my song and use it.

  2. I will be using my experience of reading fantasy. This experience allows exaggeration because reading it’s self is uncertain. I will be using the perspective of me myself somehow got involved inside the story. To have suspense, I think I will add ideas of my own to mingle with the original authors. For stock footage, there are couple of songs and other books that remind me of this book.

  3. 1. I will be using my experience of diving.
    2. This experience allow me to exaggerate because I’ve dived in a lot of place.

    5. I will use some pictures of SWA and a slow calm song.

  5. I will be using when I went to the international school at the first time. When I went to the international school that all students at there speaking English and learn subjects with English, I had so many difficulties and unfamiliar with the environment. That could make the story exaggerating. I will use my homeroom teacher’s perspective because she knows my behavior during the school time and my English skill. At that time it was my first time to the International school and English. I want my reader to feel my past was challenging and I did a lot of efforts to be like now after reading my story. I would like to use photo evidence or memory of the experience from some one else for the stock footage.

    3. Little girls perspective because as I said before I’ll be writing a story about a little girl daily life.
