The accident is like a distant memory but not forgotten. It started good and ended with an excellent bonding experience.

    5. Snap shot lead • Create a picture in the reader’s mind; use 5 senses EX: The waves were ten feet high. The sound of booming thunder echoed as they crashed into the surf.Danger lurked in the air, and it smelled our fear. The accident is like a distant memory but not forgotten. It started good and ended with an excellent bonding experience.

    6. Talking lead • Begin with a line or two of dialogue EX: “Dude check that one out!” yelled Mark. “Betcha’ I can ride the next one,” I cut in, looking at the waves. The accident is like a distant memory but not forgotten. It started good and ended with an excellent bonding experience

    7. Thinking leads • Begin with a thought inside a character’s mind. EX: “Last day at the beach, if I don’t’ do it now I never will,” I thought to myself as I paddled to meet my destiny. The accident is like a distant memory but not forgotten. It started good and ended with an excellent bonding experience.

    8. Surprise leads • Set up expectations, then surprise the reader EX: I was good at surfing. Nothing could touch me, not anyone, not anything. I was immortal and untouchable by wipe outs.Then, the day of reckoning came. The accident is like a distant memory but not forgotten. It started good and ended with an excellent bonding experience.

    9. Set – up leads • Set – up the action for the whole story in a few sentences. EX: That day the wind was beating down on the water. The waves were twice as tall as I was. I will never forget that day when I first rode a wave on my new surfboard. The accident is like a distant memory but not forgotten. It started good and ended with an excellent bonding experience
