Y5 took undertook the 4th Story Challenge of the series with Author Caroline Busher in Episode Four: How to start a story.
PS: I have a Story Challenge to help you write a great start to your story.
First get one or two of your favorite books. If you don’t have a favorite book then pick some kids books from a library.
Next read the first page or two of each book. Think about it. Do you like how the book starts? Does it make you want to read more or does it make you want to stop reading? Why?
Now use all my tips above and write the first 100 words of a story so exciting, mysterious and wonderful that it’ll hook the reader and leave them begging you to finish the story!
Here’s their great story openings!
