Story writing is a creative writing exercise.  Students are given few lines of the beginning of the story and are required to complete the rest of the story using their own imagination.

Points to remember:

3. The ideas should be systematically presented.

4. Although, marks are not deducted for exceeding the word limit, a story should be written within 120-150 words.
