Writing Strong Beginnings
  • You don’t have to write the beginning first!
  • It doesn’t matter if the beginning of the rough draft sucks.
  • Drop your reader into the thick of things.
  • Give them a reason to keep reading.

  • If you’ve not completed your first drafts, do that first.
  • If you have completed your first draft, go back over your draft and revise your beginning.
  • If you’ve done all of these things, spend the rest of the period revising your first draft.
  • Your drafts are due at the end of the period.
