How to Begin Your Spring Story
Pick Your Setting
The first step is to decide where your story will take place. Will it be in a bustling city surrounded by people and tall buildings? Or will it be in a more rural area, with rolling hills and fields of wildflowers? Maybe it will be somewhere in between, like a park or beach. No matter what setting you choose, make sure it fits the mood and tone of your story.
Choose Your Characters
Who will populate your springtime story? Will they be animals, like birds or bees? Or will they be people, like children playing in the park or students on their way to school? Perhaps they’ll be a mix of both! Think about what kind of interactions you want your characters to have with each other and their environment.
Decide on the Plot
Now it’s time to start thinking about what happens in your story. Will there be a mystery to solve? A journey to embark on? A problem to overcome? Let your imagination run wild! Make sure that whatever events occur feel natural for the characters and setting you’ve chosen.
Spring: The Season of New Beginnings
After a long, cold winter, there’s nothing quite like the feeling of springtime in the air. The weather is getting warmer, the days are getting longer, and the flowers are starting to bloom. It’s a time of new beginnings when anything feels possible. Here’s how some of history’s greatest writers have described spring weather.
“The day was fresh, with a busy breeze stirring the pollen out of the daffodils so that tempestuous yellow clouds sailed as high as the house-tops.”Virginia Woolf, Mrs Dalloway
“April is the cruelest month, breeding lilacs out of the dead land, mixing memory and desire, stirring dull roots with spring rain.”T.S. Eliot, The Waste Land
