Starting With A Sizzle – Sizzling Starts

Sizzling starts are taking over 4A’s writing!

We have been investigating the creative ways we can start our writing.

We found out we can create a sizzling start by using:

  • onomatopoeia
  • dialogue
  • humour
  • alliteration
  • a question
  • a surprising fact
  • something unexpected

We have been also looking at how other writers create sizzling starts.
