    This is just a place where you can (hopefully) get help with your homework. Just don't let your parents find out. :wth:
    OK, I'm in the middle of my short story and my main characters are riding their bikes into the city in Albany, New York. Should I have everything go perfect, or should something bad happen? (e.g. Popped tire, gang attack, etc.)

    P.S., I wasn't sure if this should be a Random Thoughts thing, so if it should, go ahead and close it.

    Make Albany a zombie city, replace the bikes with an alligator, have one of the kids wearing track spikes and one accidentally touches the alligator with them and the alligator gets mad because it didn't realize the kids were on him.

    Tah-dah!

    hmm..there's normally a general template for all stories, I can't remember the exact one but it's something like:

    Introduction --> Problem --> Resolution --> end

    so I say gang attack >_>'

    OK, I'm assuming this won't be closed. I'll use Kat's idea, because I'm not sure how a tire would pop besides a nail or broken glass. And this thread is for everyone, so go ahead and ask about your own homework if you want.

    Make sure you present a reason for the attack, maybe you should have a back story of your characters that they p*ssed one of the gang members off in the past and one of them recognized the character thus a reason to attack.

    Just remember, the whole story has to make sense.

    Don't worry Derek, I'll make it logical, but then again, who said a gang needs a reson to attack an innocent 13-year-old? :mellow:

    Make it so that they tried to take him and his best friend's money. Yeah it could be considered stereotypical, but muggings happen alot in the crime filled areas.

    Is Albany a crime filled area? :huh:

    Edit: I'll use your idea Derek. Pretty soon I'll have to put "Written By Matt [Last name that I won't tell you] and the members of the Linkin Park Association.

    I had to make a sci-fi (not sure if you need that) short story a while back for English... here it is, if you need any ideas. It completely sucks, though, so I wouldn't recommend trying to copy it. :lol:

    EDIT: I should probably edit this short story for grammar... but I'm lazy. Sorry. lol

    I actually like this idea. It's really apropiate considering GCSES are coming up for those in secondary (poor b*****ds :D), AS/A-Levels for us (b*****ks).

    So yeah we could work something out with this. Thanks for the idea mate =)

    I like the the perspective you wrote the story in, its always better when you show the thought process of your character rather then try to explain everything from a higher perspective. In my opinion it adds a personal aspect to the story.

    Great job.

    uhmmmmm, ethanol= C2H6O

    H3C-CH2-O-H

    I'm not sure but it's something like that. :D


    EDIT: sorry if I caused you any damage, because it's not really the right one. I take full responsibility! :lol: (the first one is an alcohol, the second an acid)
    here's the correct one:

    ethanoic acid=CH3COOH

    ....................H O
    ..................../ //
    ...............H-C-C-OH
    ................../
    .................H

    * I hope I read my final exam questions of chemics better than I do yours :D *








    (how do you centre something?)
