Due to the 5th grade writing assessment, our session started late so we didn't have much time to post to our blogs. However, your readers will be in left in suspense as they read the first part of your post!
I must give kudos to Graciela once again! Her introduction to A Delicious Story was outstanding!
What would you do if you woke up one morning and found out that the world was made of candy? Of course, you would be shocked but excited. If you are a person who loves candy and sweets you'll love my story even better!
She started out with a question to entice her readers. Graciela then finished up her story with lots of details, descriptive vocabulary, and dialogue. Her ideas and content was so good that her story came alive as we read it outloud. Way to go Graciela!
We got an excellent writing tip from our devoted reader, Brownwyn G. She said we should think of our writing as a body.
Also, the reader can tell when the beginning and end are tight and the middle is flabby (for lack of a better word). Think of your writing as like a body. Your beginning is the head, and the end is the feet. That leaves a whole middle full of arms, legs, stomach, private parts, et cetera.
Remember to concentrate on the ideas and content in your post for next week. Ask yourself the following questions:
- Does my post make sense?
- Do I seem like an expert on the topic?
- Have I included interesting details not everyone would think of?
- Will I be able to answer the reader's questions about this topic?
- Once my readers start reading my post, will they be able to stop?
I can't wait until next week!
