The Incredible Adventures of Professor Branestawm

by Norman Hunter

Chapter 1 - The Professor Invents A Machine



In Chapter 1, Professor Branestawm invents a machine that takes him and the Colonel back in time. By interfering in a battle they actually change history by helping the people that would have lost the battle.

Your writing task for this week is to search for an important event in history and imagine that you and a friend travel back in time and get involved with the event. You might pick an event that you deliberately want to change on purpose, or you might want to change a piece of history just for the fun of it. 

Write me a short story, of at least three pages, telling your story of what you did, where and when you went, what happened, and what the changes were to the history books when you got back to 2020.

Make sure you use the template below to help you to build your story. Make sure you include all parts of the template (Opening, Build up, Climax/Conflict, Resolution and Ending) to make a really entertaining short story.

If you have a printer, you can click on the template to download a copy. If you don't have a printer, just copy the five headings to help you build your story. Remember, the planning is just as important as the finished story and I want to see both.
