Make sure you understand the beginning of the scéal/eachtra that is given.
As you have a choice of two here pick the one which that most appeals to you most and make sure you have the necessary vocabulary.
If you ask questions such as Cé?, Conas?, Cathain?, Cá? etc. you will come up with ideas.
It is always a good idea to use an Obair Gharbh page to work through your ideas before you begin to write the scéal/eachtra itself.
Make sure you know the Aimsir Chaite (Past tense Tense ) as this event has happened in the past.
Try to vary the length of your sentences throughout your scéal /eachtra and don't start every sentence with a verb .
Use as many nathanna cainte as you can. A certain saibhreas teanga is expected at higher level .
Have a strong ending. Often a casadh obann (twist) at the end adds interest.
If appropriate, use a seanfhocal or two, particularly at the end of your scéal / eachtra .Finally, check over what you have written, paying particular attention to verbs and grammar.
