Here we go! As promised to St Paul's young writers, three story openings for you!
At the back of the cupboard was a box, and in the box was a key, and it was . . . . who found the key. (NB. Put whatever word or name you want in the gap!)
OUT OF THE SEA
All day, the small boat was hurled onwards by the rough waves. Finally, the boat was swirled past vicious rocks, and flung on to the sand like a broken toy. The next day dawned, and something moved among the wreckage.
Have you ever looked in a mirror, and not seen what you expected to see? Seen that everything has changed? If you have, then you'll know how I felt at that moment.
You may even find that none of these work for you, but do start off an idea for your very own story opening! HAVE FUN & HAPPY WRITING!
