Lesson 1 – Write your introductory paragraph of the story – (Look at your plan – WHO? What? Where?)
WAGOLL – Paragraph 1
In a faraway kingdom of Arragon, the sun rose over the mountainous horizon. Men, women, and children began to wake to a beautiful day, and the narrow-cobbled streets were beginning to fill with a discord of singing and laughter. The joyous sounds carried through the air danced gradually down to the creek. Odeon once known as a great king, a hero who became victorious at the Great War, steadily rose from the dungeon floor, merely peering through the bars which contained him for last 15 years. His dark brown, long hair, once wavy and shiny, was now dull and greasy, hanging across his face like a drape. He glared outside, with still an atoms weight of hope in his heart, of one day escaping the monsters that once captivated him for possessing the power of controlling fire. “I will escape this impenetrable dungeon, and rescue my uncle from the Island of Dystopia,” Odeon told himself.

WAGOLL – Paragraph 2
Suddenly, the sound of marching, and thunderous stomps sent shockwaves of energy into the belly of Arragon. Ice rocks, the size of a battle shield came raining down. The eruption of roars sent tidal waves as high as the clouds across the River Sham. With a large CRASH! The high walls around Arragon split wide open. Odeon held tightly on to the remaining bars of his now obliterated dungeon. With the turmoil growing at large, Odeon still shellshocked, began to tread ever so carefully through the now decimated castle of his captors. The chambers of the castle once flourishing with endless drinking and feasting, now had bodies scattered across like carcasses of dead animals. “ODEON! ODEON! Son of Osiris! I demand you to come and face me!” The words of his arch enemy Cyborg rang in his ear like a bell. With a bit of luck Odeon spotted a spark levitating in the corner of his eye. With a loud gasp, he realised it was his fire power, which was once locked away by the wicked princess of Arragon. The closer he got the greater the sparks grew. In a blink of an eye, the flames moved through the veins of Odeon. He shut his eyes tight and clenched his fist out wide. Bang! A volcanic eruption beneath the feet of Odeon volleyed him into the air, piercing a hole through the clouds he travelled to the Island of Dystopia, with the last glimmer of hope in rescuing his uncle.
