In honour of NaNoWriMo, this month’s worksheets will have one purpose: to increase your word count by hook or by book. A mini-quest is a small diversion on the character’s path. If the ultimate goal is to save the princess, then a mini-quest may be to find the magic phone book to look up her address, or to return to your castle because you can’t remember whether or not you closed the draw-bridge. Add a few mini-quests to slow the pace and to develop character and you’ll have earned yourself 500-1000 words each.
