Submit one Microsoft Word file with two full pages of prewriting–one on each story: “Desiree’s Baby” and “Sweetness.” You may choose to “freewrite” or “brainstorm.” Write automatically and quickly–do not refer to the story–simply write after reading the story critically to generate as many ideas as possible.  You need not correct typos since you are writing to generate ideas for yourself. Omit the MLA heading so that you can fill the entire page with your ideas about the story. Use the MLA header to place your last name and page number in the upper right margin.  Do not refer to websites about the story for this activity. Put all references aside and let your mind wonder about each story. Double-space and use a Times New Roman 12 point font.

Review the two following documents to prepare for the prewriting assignment.
