Find your Seat: Sentence Starters

Before I start my stories I like to write out a whole lot of story starters. Normally they are about a paragraph long and they give you a multi choice option of how you could possibly start your story.
I like to do around five so that I can push past the shallow ideas and move onto the deeper ones.

The best thing about this is that you can choose your top two edit them to the best then pick the one that paints the better picture.

Book your Ticket: Planing

Dear Writing  Friends,
Planing is really important. It gets the easy ideas out of the way and then generates the massive creative ones. It also gives you a better idea of what the story setting charters problem and revolution might be.

Circle line circle. Not every plan must follow this format there are many different ways to show planing even just words can do the trick if that is the way that you plan best. Look at this one for example it has more of a mountain look suggesting the problem at the top and the charters setting and revolution on the way down.

Clues. Clues are a really important part of writing your average novel has around 9 clues all together.
They can also help make the reader feel one step ahed of the charter.

Catch the first flight!

Hi I'm Bella. I am just a 11 year old girl with a passion for writing. Most of you reading will be avid writers wanting to learn from each other that exactly why I have started this blog so that we can communicate, help and learn off each other.

Last year I entered in the colour your classroom competition. The theme was he best day of your life.
I worked really hard on a piece that could be entered. I still remember trying to squeeze detail into 500 words. I was stuck really. That is when I first experienced writers block and it often happens to me now but I have a way past it. If you ever get writers block I find the best thing is to find inspiration talk to the people around you and ask what they think.

I also have a problem with having loads of story-lines. I have found that it makes the reader rather confused and  can complicate things. I think that the best thing to do is stick with one thing unless you can make it really clear what is happening.
