Introduction

Development

Opening sentences make it clear what the focus of the paragraph will be. A short sentence is a very effective technique which can be used well here.

The next few sentences add more detail and start to bring the events or feelings to life.

Supporting

Conclusion

This aspect of the paragraph adds the human side and makes clear how the character is feeling. It adds the emotion.

The end of the paragraph should start to introduce the topic of the next paragraph so that the narrative flows rather than jumps from one paragraph to the next.


The Fire

The window smashed, sending glass flying in all directions. Bright flames burst through into the room. I ducked, keeping my body as low as I could, trying desperately to avoid the smoke that was advancing rapidly across the ceiling. I scanned the room for other exits and was relieved to see a small window on the far wall. The smoke was getting thicker and starting to descend towards the floor. My mind shouted, ‘Move. Go for the window. Get out.’ Taking a deep breath of clean air, possibly my last, I pushed away from the wall and towards safety. As I struggled to open the window, I felt my heart pounding. My lungs screamed for air. The smoke descended and I worked blind, my eyes stinging. I pulled frantically at the catches, felt them give and wrenched the window open. I fell through the open window onto the ground below. I felt the heat escaping from the open window above me and started to crawl slowly away.
