    Back to school

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by Taylor kyle, Jun 30, 2016.

    What would be a good, uncliche first day of school scene? I'm having trouble formulating a well written back to school day for a story i am writting. I hate cliches, but thats mainly all i know because i dont find a lot of stories that switch it up. I really need a good example.

    One thing about me is i am a urban fiction writer and the protagonist is a teen mom. I am NOT writing a cliche story.

    School shooting.

    Your MC walks into school and is greeted with gunfire and mayhem. Should have taken the day off, 20th of April, 1999.

    It really depends on what the story is about, and how it could tie into the things that are important later. You don't want random meaningless scenes just for the hell of it. Every scene has to mean something and be connected to the others.
