Hi Isabella, my favorite book today is The Lost Princess.  I The Lost Princessthink it is a fun story and I just love the cover.  In fact, I liked it so much I am going to sell T-shirts soon that go with the book. 
     Payton, a lot of people have trouble with starting stories.  An easy way is to just start with Once Upon a Time.  Then after you've worked on your story a while, go back and take it off.  It's always nice to start a story in the middle of action.  Good luck with your writing!  Happy Wednesday, Debbie
