View Full Version : Up A Tree
28th Feb 2010, 1:26 AM
This was a short story I wrote for my creative writing class, as an exercize in 3-Act structure. It was done as a joke, when my teacher explained that 3-Act-Structure went: Get your hero up a tree. Throw rocks at him. Get him down. Essentially, it recounts the tale of a squirrel being chased by a dog, from the squirrel's perspective. I hope you enjoy it. To preserve style, and make it easier for you, I have decided to include it as an upload to Mediafire.

Your story's very interesting and funny. I feel sorry for the poor squirrel. Do you have more stories to post?

Well, there's a screenplay I wrote with some friends, but now's not really a good time of year, and all my other stories are on my mom's computer, so it might be a bit before I can post them. But I'll probably post the one I'm working on now once it's finished.

Cool. What is the screenplay and the story you're working on now called?
I'm really happy right now. I just got a new computer and I'm typing this on my laptop as I install the Sims 2 and 3. Random.

The Screenplay is a humorous murder-mystery/holiday special entitled "Who Killed Frosty the Snowman?"
The story I'm working on now hasn't got a proper title yet, but it's about the end of days as described in a fake religion I made up for the purpose of use in stories.

The second story sounds really interesting and the first sounds really funny. How far into the story are you?

I'm about a page in and stuck. I may have to scrap it. Today in Health Class, however, we had to write stories about the 5 stages of grief, and I'm thinking I could probably work mine a bit and make it good.
