    Something like “Prisons do not rehabilitate; they tend to create, at exorbitant costs, ever more hardened criminals.”You may be interested in the following:”In the Babemba tribe of South Africa, when a person acts irresponsibly orunjustly, he is placed in the center of the village, alone and unfettered. Allwork ceases, and everyone in the village gathers in a large circle aroundthe accused. Then each person in the tribe speaks to the accused, one ata time, recalling the good things the person has done in his life. Everyexperience that can be recalled with detail and accuracy is recounted. Allhis positive attributes, good deeds, strengths, and kindnesses are recitedcarefully. This ceremony often lasts for several days. At the end, a joyouscelebration takes place, and the person is symbolically and literallywelcomed back into the tribe.”-Jack Kornfield, *The Art of Forgiveness, Lovingkindness, and Peace*

    Every story needs the following:An interesting main character (PROTAGONIST) that readers will like and identify with, but not too perfect – they must have a flaw (or more than one) which holds them back somehow.The protagonist must have a GOAL. This goal is the whole point point of the story – without it, don’t even bother writing. His quest to reach this goal is the story problem.There must be STAKES involved; if the protagonist fails to achieve their goal, they lose something important. It matters. The higher the stakes, the more gripping the story. Saving the world or personal survival, for example, are higher stakes than being the most popular kid in school or winning a contest, and will grab a bigger audience. (Not that those things can’t be good stakes for a story – just make them as important for the protagonist as you can.)There has to be a bad guy (ANTAGONIST) or an antagonistic force (disease, fire, storm, alien race) to get in the way and make it difficult for the protagonist to reach their goal. Sometimes, there may be many antagonistic forces, but there’s usually one main one.An INCITING INCIDENT somewhere near the beginning of the story. An event which kicks the conflict off and presents the protagonist with the story problem.A CALL-TO-ACTION, ideally somewhere around a quarter of the way through the story but that’s just a rough guide. At this point the main character is forced to take action, and there’s no going back. Their lives are going to be different from now on.RISING ACTION. A series of events that show the protagonist trying to reach their goal but coming up against obstacles. His personal flaws hold him back, but something happens to teach him about them. This takes up most of the middle part of the story.ALL SEEMS LOST. A moment when the protagonist has a serious knock-back and the antagonistic forces seem insurmountable.A TURNING POINT which gives him hope and a new plan. He draws on what he’s learned throughout the middle part of the story – the rising action – overcomes his fears and flaws and prepares for…THE CLIMAX, somewhere around three-quarters of the way through the story – again, a very rough guide. This is the most exciting bit where the protagonist faces their ultimate challenge and either wins or loses out on their goal.A DENOUEMENT, when the consequences of the climax are worked out and loose ends wrapped up.Each and every one of these things are attention grabbers, how ever as these are for stories ( sorry I’m not sure if you’re writing a story or like a paper) therefore you will need-A CATCHY INTROYou want to SHOW not TELL.Keep the into short and snappy, leave the details till laterSTAKESKeep putting things is like but if _____________ then this was at stake for that personEXAMPLESPut a little imagination in it- take an example, putting it in your own (interesting words)or you could just tell your sister you’re egrophobic (phobia of work lol)Clueless’ sister Mindless age 9 xx
