How?!

With a BANG!

Here are five simple techniques writers often use to open their writing:

  • A question that sparks the reader’s curiosity
  • A personal story that sets the tone of the story
  • A famous, inspirational quotes stimulate thought or gives the writer credibility
  • A dramatic, inspiring opening
  • A clue as to what the reader can expect in the piece (a summary, so to speak)

Came across this yesterday while helping my 10-year-old with his writing workbook.  Learning something new everyday.

Life is great! 🙂
