Are you writing at GCSE level?

Your idea doesnt sound bad at all.

Why not just "brainstorm" it?

Grab a piece of paper and just dot down words that come to mind such as visit, fear, joy, happiness, love, shock ..

dot them down and then try to draw some idea from the thoughts staring back at you.

That way it will be all your own work also. :)

Good luck hun... you can do this!! :)

Have you watched the film Mr Brooks?

The Gift could be a pregnancy and you could take that many different ways

How about, for 'The Visitor', doing a story about a person moving silently through the streets at night, looking for the right home, with people inside the houses either unaware of the visitor or frightened of him, knowing what it means if he calls at their house & breathing a sigh of relief as he walks past. Lots of dark sombre mood & descriptions, fear, trepidation, etc. The visitor stops at a house, enters without knocking, greets the person he's looking for, then they both leave the house. The person follows the visitor as he moves onward, looking for another house & another person, and so it goes on, through the night, with more people following him. At the end you can reveal (if the readers haven't guessed already) that the visitor is Death.

Yes, choose the story-line you feel confident with and, of course, there's a zillion alternative themes that could arise from these suggestions. Hope the muse descends upon you (another gift!!) and the the A materialises ( seeing into the future). :thumbsup:

or why dont you make the gift something bad like being stabbed / terrible accident then use that to turn the persons life around ?
teen gangster realising he's going down the wrong path or along them lines ?

great idea. now youre talking

Don't pick something that you feel will be seen as "borrowing" from another source, you know how hot teachers are on that now and it will restrict how you write.

Just try to think " outside the box" and write about something familiar in an unfamilliar way.

For instance describe the "visit" of autumn and the feelings of the leaf as life advances towards its end...

Just write about something that means something to YOU. Clarify your thoughts and feelings and the images in your mind and allow them to be channeled into words, express yourself in any way you can.

umm
Without being harsh, is this allowed?

As your coursework should be your own work. This site is used by many people, possibly even your teachers..

So be careful!

A retired greengrocer becomes a regular at the local hospital bringing grapes to people that don't have any family.

There's nothing that this man doesn't know about fruit!

You could develop the story detailing the varieties of grapes he brings, you know, seeded, seedless, white, black, red, Italian, South African, you know the sort of thing; and the strange stories that he picks up from each of the patients that he visits.

Some of the patients see him as a friend, others as an unwelcome, even sinister person who seems overinformed about fruit - grapes in particular.

But with no other visitors, they say nothing about their inner turmoil.

Do you know what would make a good plot twist? One of the patients could be an English teacher who had a stroke when she realised that one of her A students, in whom she hitherto had trust and confidence to be creative and not cheat, was trawling around a deals website for essay ideas, and as if that isn't bad enough she realises that the A student thinks that she's a total zero in the IT arena.

It proves to be the last straw and the teacher dies . . .









. . . but not before she fails the student!!! :w00t:

Just that old joke about the three guys that were captured by the natives and had to bring back 30 of a single type of fruit, you remember, grapes, bananas and pineapples!
