Inspiration for our writing

The market place was silent. No smoke came from the chimneys. No-one was in the streets, or in pubs and the warm glow of the village was put out by the ringing bells in the distance. The sad slow ringing echoed through the village. The people stood there motionless and staring in dismay at the fire. The fire burning the body of their king. The princess was staring down at the gold mask placed upon her father’s face. Tears were rolling down her cheeks as she stared at the people she would now have to rule over. I stood opposite her and stared at her beautiful face, she looked back at me my father called me “William come your mother needs you NOW!” He said firmly “Hazel is ill!”

    Wow! What a brilliant piece of writing! I love the use of descriptive language and how you have cleverly varied the length of your sentences to build tension and paint a really vivid picture of the scene. I want to know what happens next!

    You should both be very proud of the start of your story! Using the virtual world as your inspiration has meant you have created an engaging and tense first paragraph. I like how you have managed to introduce many characters and a variety of emotions for the reader. Keep up the good work!

    A fantastic piece of writing. I love your use of empty words, and the way you have really created the still atmosphere. The short sentence opener you have used has a great impact too- well done! I might share this with my Y6 children in my school as it is National Storytelling week, and see what they come up with!!
