We are writing effective sentences for a newspaper report today.
Start by summarising the 5Ws.
E.g. Who? Queen Sychorax. What? Posters threatening death to wizards. Where? Wizard Fort/Backwoods. When? Last night/yesterday evening/earlier today/shortly after daybreak. Why? Being magic/trespassing.
Create a paragraph that combines these ideas.
E.g. A wave of horror tore across the Wildwoods yesterday as the killer-queen Sychorax - head of the Iron Warriors - declared death to all wizards.
Choose precise verbs for:
E.g. forbidding, banning outlawing.
E.g. telling, calling for, demanding, ordering, promising.
E.g. captured, confiscated, destroyed, incinerated, obliterated.
E.g. accessing, setting foot in.
Choose your sentence using these ideas.
