Hello! I'm writing a story for English class, and it's supposed to be somewhat like 'the devil and Tom walker'. I'm don't know how I should start the story so could someone maybe give me some ideas? (:
The main character is Lilith Thompson.
The setting is on a farm in the countryside.
She wants to go to the city and become a famous singer, but her parents don't approve, and think its dangerous and will never happen. So she sneaks into the city one night and, meets the devil in the form of a talent agent.
How could I start the story off? Examples please.
I suggest you read the opening paragraphs of several good short stories. For instance, "The Devil and Tom Walker" begins with a description of the setting. Some stories begin with a dramatic event; others with dialogue.
Try various beginnings until you find the one that grabs you.
