Plot, setting and character
When describing character - show don't tell. E.g his heart was thumping and a cold sweat broke out on his forehead. He knew it was time.

Describing setting - use adjectives to help us visualise the place. The creeking gate made the old house seem even more spooky. It's broken windows, covered in dusty spiders webs meant no one had been here in a long time!

Plot, setting and character
Use tip top to help you decide when a new paragraph should be used.

Remember to use conjunctions to help you link the paragraph.

Stick to the story you are writing - plot twist? Make sure it stays logical!!
