Lessons 3-Starting your story


How should you start your story? If you have done the previous assignments, this shouldn't be a hard task. 

Based on your plot summary, write the first chapter of your story. Minimum words, 1000.

It's not hard to reach that many words. The fact is that by the time you have written 1000 words you'll be so absorbed, you won't be able to stop. Here I must mention that you should write when you're completely free and preferably alone. If you keep getting distracted, you won't be able to get absorbed in your writing.
