Title: First-person Account
- Write the opening to a gothic story where you encounter strange and horrifying sights and sounds that leave you wondering if they were real
It was in the years when I used to hike alone; I can vividly recall my lonely climb when a sudden dark shadow swept across the bright moon above me.
- Write in first person
- Write in past tense
- At least two paragraphs
- Use gothic imagery (think about sinister and creepy words to make your reader anxious)
- Correctly use capital letters
- Check your spellings (use a dictionary)
Re-read your work, sentence by sentence, out loud. Does it sound correct? Does it scan grammatically? Edit and rewrite where appropriate.
