Being the beginning of the school year and the beginning of this year's Writer's Club, we started with the lesson about beginnings.
In the beginning of a story, you can add a prologue to give background with the world or some of the characters.
The beginning can also have a hook, to draw the reader in. The hook must have a problem, raise a question, have something unusual, and/or make a promise.
Something to be sure of, it is best to include the character, setting, and conflict in the first page.
The beginning should be simple, and make enough sense for the reader to continue reading smoothly. You need to introduce everything that you need for the story in the first chapter. And you need to start when things start changing. You need to start when the story starts.
Important Information: There will be no Writer's Club next week!
