Self-Potrait Written Chapter (Draft)

A Strong Opening for Your Written Chapter

Work Time

To help you get a strong start on the draft of your written chapter, review the message for your chapter that you came up with in the previous lesson’s Closing. Also, review the written chapter planning forms that you completed for homework: Anecdote and Details, Timeline, and Characters.

  • Start writing your draft. Try to include a strong opening that incorporates features you just discussed with your classmates. Don’t worry if you can’t think of an opening right away—sometimes writers find that the first lines of their work are the last ones that they write!
