In this story, I put suspense, questions, quotations. etc I like ending my storys  with suspense or questions so people dig in and understand the story. I used sounds to describe and tie people so they really get to know the story and whats happening, for an example “BANG!!”. I also think a good story needs a bit of everything, but mainly you topic that you picked.

In the middle bit I put some suspense and I ended a paragraph with a question or suspense so you really want to know whats going to happen,so you read the next paragraph. I used something called paragraph sandwich to help me remember what a paragraph needs. They are, topic sentence, supporting sentence, detailed sentence, supporting sentence, detailed sentence,supporting sentence,detailed sentence and closing sentence, and you just keep going until you finnish your paragraph.
