Crafting Leads - Block 2

We learned about several ways authors craft inviting leads to narrative pieces and we have been trying different leads for our own pieces. Feel free to share your leads on this post to get feedback from your classmates. If your are writing at home, here are some of the strategies we discussed in class:

Begin by describing a setting or character (snapshot)
Begin by sharing thoughts or feelings (thoughtshot)
Start with sound effects (onomatopoeia)
Start with dialogue
Begin with a question
Start by showing action

I'm looking forward to reading your leads!
