One idea I just thought of is to take one of her stories and create a sequel to it.

An update of what I have so far is my project entitled "Baby Doll"

Sometimes I come up with plots by thinking of a situation that I have dealt with in real life. Ask yourself if you would have handled this situation any differently if you had a different personality or condition. Or you could also ask yourself what could have happened if you handled the situation any differently.
Dreams are also a great outline for plots. I usually draw stories from parts of dreams and then come up with a plot from there.
Best of luck!

Help me please!
For my grade 12 writer's craft course, I have to write an original piece.
My assignment was this:
Choose a writer
Read a variety of works by this writer
Analyze his or her style and write an essay
THEN, write an original piece in the genre or style of the writer.
I picked Alice Munro, so clearly I'm writing a short story. Although her short stories are 30-40 pages in length.
I have a good grasp on her style, but i'm having trouble coming up with an original/ intriguing plot.
Does anyone have a good story or idea that I can draw upon for inspiration?
