Today, I wanted to do some free-writing but focused around beginning the story in the middle of the action.
Using dialogue as your starting line, write up to 500 words of an action scene that puts the reader in the middle of the action. Continue to use dialogue as much as you can.
For example, ‘You need to jump. Now.’
Who your character is in terms of age and background is up to you.
You are welcome to use my example if you like.
Let me know in the comments if you try this and how you found it. What was easy or difficult about it?
