- Look at the picture titled The Clocktower. Can you continue writing the story using the story starter? Can you answer the questions below? Reading the questions straight after reading the story starter might give you ideas about how you can write your story. Can you improve the sick sentences to make them sound better by adding more descriptive words or connectives?!
They had been waiting outside the clocktower all day. Soon, it would be time.
The cloud spat bullets of rain down upon the expectant crowd, before the droplets bounced off the taut canopies of the hundreds of umbrellas that flooded the cobbled square.
Eager eyes became glued to the long, black hands of the clock face. They seemed to be moving in slow motion, as if reluctant to reach the fateful hour: the fateful hour which would determine all their fates....
It was raining. People stood in the rain with their umbrellas. The clocktower stood nearby.
