Read "The Man to Send Rain Clouds" (590) from the green text. Pick any character from the story, and write your own 400-500 word tale that features that character and the above image of the barn as the primary setting for the story. The barn should play a significant role in influencing the plot, as this writing exercise is designed to illustrate how setting affects plot.
Feel free to incorporate more than one character from "Rain Clouds" into your story if you'd like. You can also invent your own characters or use characters from previous writing activities, but you must feature at least one character from "Rain Clouds."
Have fun, be creative, and be ready to share your tale in class on Friday.
