Wednesday story writing

L.I: To write the build-up with suspense and problem with action.

Today we will be writing our TWO build-up paragraphs (one to introduce the 'hook' idea and one for SUSPENSE). Remember that in the 2nd suspense paragraph you need to make the reader feel uneasy using our SPESSH idea! 

Then, you have the ACTION! This should be a life or death situation for your main character! Eek!

Don't forget your powerful verbs and emotion.

I have attached some sheets to help you with your -ing openers and -ed openers - look on the right side for build-up and action ideas.

Also, refer back to the original 'Hook' story at the top of the page for ideas that you want to magpie!
