Week 35 (21)  To comment, scroll all the way to the bottom of this pageg.
It was a rainy day .
I had to go to the market to get food for the month.
So I set out in the rain for the market.
When I was walking over to a fruit cart, someone rushed in front of me.
“Which way to the shops?” She panted. 
Obviously she had been running but from where? 
“Which shops? There are many.” I replied, hiding how confused I really was.
“The healing shops?” She said, sounding on edge.
“There is only one. It’s on you right a couple yards down the road.”
“Thanks, bye .”
And then, she was gone.

Week 34 (21)
I woke up just in time for sunrise .
I love to watch the sunrise .
There is a bird nest, right next to my new home .
The birds in it always started chirping around now.
 But instead three of the baby birds got up and flew out of the nest!
I didn’t realise they could fly yet!
I was happy that they were able to fly. 
I wish I could fly.
Then I could fly wherever I wanted to.
It would be amazing!
But then I wouldn’t be here .
This is my new home .
And I don’t ever want to leave .

Week 33 (21) To comment, scroll all the way to the bottom of this page.
I had run away.
 I was stuck with my Aunt and her “proper” daughter Poppy. 
I wasn’t going to stay there.
I couldn’t stay there.
 I was sick of it. 
So I climbed the fence and took off running. 
Now I’m here. 
Right here
Here on my tenth day of running.
Here next to this tall abandoned stone building.
Watching the waves slap the beach shore as the wind whipped my face. 
It was one place I could stay forever.
And so this is where I will stay.
I was alone here .
But that's just the way I liked it .

Week 32 (21)  

There was a flash of light, then, darkness .
There was another flash of light, then darkness again .
The rain was hitting the roof like sticks on a drum .
All was quiet in the house. 
All you could hear was the CRACK of lightning  and the BOOM of thunder.
And of course, the rain thumping on the roof, sounding like a drum .
I wanted to be outside.
I needed to escape from this house.
So I climbed out the window and onto the roof.
I heard the wind whistling in my ears.
And felt the rain hitting me like a drum .

Week 31 (21) To comment, scroll all the way to the bottom of this page.

I stepped on a mushroom .
It just wrinkled so I stepped on it harder and squashed it .
I hated rules. 
Especially the wistful ones here.
My family was in the house but, the only people I was allowed to see were my Aunt Patty and my cousin Poppy.
There was a lake only a mile away, they even had a boat and an oar.
But one rule was that I couldn’t go out of the stupid fence.
Luckily there was a tree just inside the fence.
With a beautiful view and quiet peace.
I spend most of my time there.

Week 30 (21)

I started to open my eyes.
I saw the round woman, but this time she wore a bright red dress with white lace..
Then I realized it wasn't all a dream .
“Aunty!” I shouted, my voice horse.
“Shush child, you might wake up Poppy in the next room .” She in her tough motherly voice.
“But…” I trailed off, because I couldn’t speak any more, memories coming back .
“ It’s ok . Go to sleep. You need it .” 
She walked to the door.
Suddenly, darkness enveloped the room . 
Lots of thoughts were swirling all around in my mind .
Then I fell fast asleep.

Week 29 (21) To comment, scroll all the way to the bottom of this page.

I kept walking.
On and on and on .
I felt like I had been walking forever.
There was a constant aching in my legs that felt like it would never go away. 
Then I finally reached the house.
I knew it was the house because it had a big 29 in front .
I had finally found it . 
The big 29 in front gave me the energy to walk up to the grand front door. 
I knocked .
The door swung open and a round woman with a royal blue dress appeared in the door.
And finally, I collapsed into her arms.

Week 28 (21)
As it let out a pitiful howl .
As the rain was beating down .
 It howled again, loud and sad .
I was sad too .
I barely escaped .
But at least I was here .
At least I was safe .
It let out another pitiful howl .
Everyone else was in the cottage warm, cozy and safe .
And I was out here .
I wanted to be out here .
I felt more safe out here .
High in this tree .
Even though it was raining . 
Even though the pitiful wolf was howling . 
I felt safe here .
 I felt good here .
 I was going to stay here .

Week 27 (21)

And there it was the violin that sounded like no other, and right next to it the best carved elephant in all of history, it also happened to be painted purple. A very odd elephant when you think about it. 
As we moved on to the next things in the museum's display, I couldn’t stop thinking about that violin and how much better it would sound than all other violins.  I wasn’t really paying attention to anything till my mom asked,

“Do you want to go to the gift shop now?”
“Yes!” I said immediately
  That got my attention quick,

Week 26 (21) To comment, scroll all the way to the bottom of this page.

“No” she said, “I like Marmite.” 
“Mar-what?” Alex asked.
“Marmite.” She replied
“Marme?” He tried.
“Marmite.” She said impatiently.
“Martea?” He tried again.
“Marmite!” She almost screamed.
“Ok ok, I can’t say it.” He said guilty. 
“No, I’m sorry I screamed at you. But, I’m just wondering, can you sound out words?” She asked. 
“Yes.” He said defencealy. 
“ So why can’t you pronounce Marmite?” She asked sceptical.
He didn’t answer.
“Alex why can’t you pronounce it.” She asked again.
“ Wait how do you know how to sound out words?”
“Now who’s asking the questions.” He said triumphantly. 

Week 25 (21)
I was walking through the zoo. I wasn’t sure what to do. I was a little bored at this part, but my family liked this part so I didn’t say anything that would ruin the fun for them. 
Then I wasn’t looking where I was going and I bumped into something hard. 
It hurt, I thought it was just a wall but when I looked it wasn’t a wall, it was a giant statue! 
I almost screamed but stopped myself.
 I went back to where my family was and thought that was one embarrassing thing I’d keep to myself. 

Week 24 (21)
I was walking through a thick forest, it was beautiful. Then I saw something blue and another orange and another red! 
 I stopped moving in horror, they were only a few feet away, then the orange one spoke first,
“Should we eat it?”
“What if it’s poisonous?” The blue one replied. 
“ Can we just eat it? I am hungry, our last meal wasn’t filling.” The red one complained.
“Fine. But I blame you if we get poisoned.” The blue one said shortly.
And they came closer and closer, I bolted upright, relieved when I realized it was just a dream.

Week 23 (21)
I was walking through my backyard, heading for my favorite tree to climb, and then I heard a loud,
The pop was frightening so I kicked something in front of me to see what it was, and when I looked down I saw a brown balloon.  Then I remembered my moms words,
“Never litter. It is bad for the environment.” 
So I picked the brown balloon up, went inside, and threw it in the garbage can. I did not know where it came from so I washed my hands quickly and went back outside, to climb my favorite tree.

Week 22 (21) To comment, scroll all the way to the bottom of this page.
“… ,but where did it go?” she shouted…

“I know I am not the best at keeping track of things, but where did it go?” She shouted at 7:30 in the morning. 
“I don’t know, why are you asking me?” I asked her back.
“Because you were the last person who saw my phone!” She shouted again.
“Well I’m not keeping track of your things. Did you look in your room? Or in couch cushions?”
“No.” She almost whispered 
“ Well then you have no reason to blame me.” I said shortly
A little while later I heard,
“Found it!”  
“Uhh, and where was it.”
“I’m not telling.”
Week 20 (21)
Everything seemed to be slower, but I kept going because I knew when I got to the top of the hill, it would be worth it, just to come racing back down.
I finally made it to the top. I got off my bike for a quick rest,  then I leaped onto my bike building speed quickly as I raced down the hill. 
“Whooo!” I yelled.
 As I relaxed my hands and my feet slid off the pedals. I circled even ground for a little bit and decided to go back up the hill, just for the rush down again.

Week 19 (21)  To comment, scroll to the bottom of this page.
When it just wouldn’t take off, “BOOM!” It took off into the sky and landed right behind us.
Me and my brother were playing stomp rocket, so we would put the rocket on the stand and stomp on the little box of air that makes it fly up into the sky. 
We set it up again “BOOM!” It flew into the sky and we saw it start to come down then, it landed high up in a tree.
“I’ll get it,” I said as I climbed up the tree, grabbed it and climbed down, and then set it up again. 

Week 17 (21)To comment, scroll to the bottom of this page.
We were walking through the woods, we didn’t exactly know why but we were bored so we just kept walking deeper and deeper into the woods. 
Then we saw this odd tree, we went around to what we thought was the front of the tree and all are mouths dropped. The tree or what we thought was a tree looked like a person, a big person but a person. 
Then I said “ Anyone want to run?” 
And everyone said “Yes.” at once.
So, we all ran, all the way out of the woods and never went into the woods again.

Week 15 (21)  To comment, scroll to the bottom of this page.
2020 has been hard for everyone. We just have to push our way through it and look forward, and be hopeful for 2021, because that's all we can do right now, just be hopeful for a new year, wear masks, social distance and do the right thing. 
2020 has been very very hard but we can all make it to 2021 and hopefully have a much less chaotic year than 2020. The whole world has had many losses but vaccines are coming out and 2021 has even more hope now because we just all have to do the right thing.

Week 13 (21)  To comment, scroll all the way to the bottom of the page.  
I didn’t remember putting it on? My favorite pajamas? But I only wore them on special occasions like Christmas and three days ago was just a normal December first. I mean I guess I don’t mind that they got washed. It's not like they shrunk or anything it just, I swear I didn’t wear them. But yet my mom said that she was glad I wore them because I hadn't in a long time. I was not helping myself so I just decided to not wear them till Christmas and bed done with the big, bad fight in my head.

Week 11 (21)
I pushed back some leaves. Then I saw a beautiful white castle, with tall magnificent towers. Then I saw a huge tree branch rolling down the hill with a man running in front of it! I did not know what to do, then I saw a shack with a very crafty door in front. I went up and knocked. A woman answered. I told her about the man and she said “Oh he will be fine. Would you like tea?” Then I herd music and shot right up. 
“Oh, just a dream.” I said as I turned off my alarm.

Week 10 (21)
Me and my brother went to one side of our couch and my dad to the other side. We were in our den and something very bad happened. So we picked it up and walked slowly to the living room, careful to not step on any wet drywall or wet towels on the floor because of the leaking pipe above us. Then we stopped. We had to try to fit our couch past our fridge that was sticking out a bit, if only it was a bit smaller, I thought, as we just barely got it past the big fridge.

Week 9 (21)

I was in our sunroom, my eyes closed.  Then my eyes snapped open and I heard a very loud buzzing sound to the left of my head. 
I looked to my left and saw a very, very large bee. I thought it was inside so I got up so fast I stubbed my toe and ran inside the house thinking of how it could have gotten inside. 
Then I looked again, and realized that it was outside! It kept hitting the window like it could magically get through it. I sat back down thinking of how it couldn’t get through. 

Week 8 (21) To comment, scroll all the way to the bottom, please.

They were home alone and they knew all the rules. Then her brother started to play his violin in the living room.

She was not in the mood for his violin because she was doing homework and was very tired so she asked him if he could please play it in his room and he simply said no and keeped playing, she asked him again and again, but he would not stop, exhausted & breathing hard, she simply raised her fists and then thought that this wasn't right so she took one of their dogs and headed up to her room.

Week 7 (21)

I pet my Bailey, one of my fluffy dogs. I had a cast on then because I sprained my ankle and the cast was such a nuisance . Then mom said that we should walk the puppies, she was not talking to me of course she was talking to my brother. I wanted to go and we found out that I could ride my scooter with my cast so we went outside. I stood out because I was wearing a red shirt with a reindeer that danced on it. The concrete felt hard and cold as we walked along the road.
Week 6 (21)

It was three days before my birthday, and my aunt already sent her a present for me. My mom opened it without me looking, then she said to bring it up to my room and not to open it yet.

So I brought it up, stared and set it down on the floor. I know she told me not to open it but I had to see what was inside. I told myself no but I thought just a small peak, and so I looked in, saw something rainbow and then dashed back down the stairs like everything was fine.

Week 5(21)
“Do you like cannons?” Asked Lizzie as we where walking home. I answered “Not really I mean they were used for war wich is pretty violent and violence is never good” I was definitely not prepared for that question and was supplies again for what she said next “Couldn't you use canos for something else?” I thought about that for a moment, and then finally said “You could put glitter in one and shout it out the end.” After she said “Ya so they could be used for something other than violence, like shouting glitter.” “Ya.” I agreed. “They can.”

Week 4(21)

I walked out the door. My brother was playing his violin and I found it quite annoying right then, so I decided to climb my tree in our front yard. When I stated to walk I tripped and bruised my elbow, down there I saw a green prickly leaf, it was odd but I got to the tree and climbed to my favorite branch to sit on. I sat there for a while. Then a couple just walked by. They did not notice me, but when I got back to my house I wondered why no one ever looked up.

Week 3(21)
They never should have said yes. It was bad not that bad, but still bad. So I asked my mom if we could bring our dog to my brother's soccer game and I was not prepared for the answer. I thought she would say no, but she said yes so. We went to my brother's soccer game with are dog and it was great at first and then he saw all the people that were there , and started to bark. He was the loudest dog on earth. He is so, so friendly but so loud. Everyone was looking at us.

Practice Week

I know how he got stuck in the hay. I watched the whole thing happen. I was outside with my dog, we were playing with a ball, and then we saw him come up the road and on to the grass. Suddenly Buch my dog was not interested in the ball anymore. He moved and lay down.The bike was heading right for him! Then the bike came to a frighting stop everything flipped over and he flew into the hay! I had to pule him out of the hay and say “I am so sorry for my dog sir”.

  6. Hi Emma,
    Well done on your story.
    I think it is quite realistic to be annoyed by a brother or sister playing their musical instrument! I can also imagine being doubly annoyed by falling over and getting bruised.
    I loved how at the end you thought about how people don't tend to look up when they walk around. It's very true. I wonder how much we miss?
    Thank you for sharing,
    Michelle, Team 100wc,

  7. I like how you are so creative by wanting to put other things in a cannon like glitter.

    logan gates ges at fms

    logan gates

  16. I really liked your week 17 writing piece! It is so well written and I would have ran too if I was in that woods with a tree that looked like a person! You described your writing very well. I like how you put that you were bored so you went into the woods and at the end you ran really fast out of the woods and you never went in those woods again! Keep up the great work! ~Lizzie :D

  17. Hi Emma ,
    I liked your week 19 When it said it just wouldn't take of boom! That part was so good .
    Suzanna Sara Cherian

  18. Hello Emma, Your week 8 was so nice! I know how it feels to be annoyed by a sibling who plays music. (in my case bad music) I'm sure your brother didn't mean to annoy you so much. Have a nice day!

  19. I like week 20 it was good 10/10

  20. Greetings from Australia Emma. I can sooooo relate to losing my phone. You chose a topic many people can relate to. I wonder where the phone was found? I try to put my phone on the hall table so I know where it is - but once found it in the fridge! Your accurate punctuation made your text easy to read. Thank you.😊

  21. Hi I liked your week 22 because at the first it started that you lost your phone and both of you were fighting at the first .
    Well done I really liked it .

    Suzanna Sara Cherian

  22. Hi, Emma I liked you Week 23 piece. Because you used the words very well! Like "The pop was frightening so I kicked something in front of me to see what it was, and when I looked down I saw a brown balloon."
    - Elliott

  23. I love your week 23! I like how you used the words you were given and made them into a really good story. Keep up the good work,

  24. Hi Emma,
    I really liked your week 24! It was soo funny how the orange and the blue things were fighting about eating it! Great work

  25. I liked your week 24 it had lots of details in it like "relieved when I realized it was just a dream." Keep writing. Crosby

  26. Emma, nice job on your Week 24 piece! It was fun to read, I like how you included a forest.
    -Elliott Iddings (Keep Writing)

  27. Hi Emma,
    I love your week 9! it makes perfect sense lots of bees & bugs do that! because glass is clear.

  28. Hi Emma,
    I liked how your characters interacted with each other how Alex said he could sound out words. Keep writing. Crosby

  29. Hi!!!!! I loved your week 26! So curative!!!!!!!
    ~Soleil ( I like this part "“No” she said, “I like Marmite.”
    “Mar-what?” Alex asked.
    “Marmite.” She replied
    “Marme?” He tried.
    “Marmite.” She said impatiently.
    “Martea?” He tried again.
    “Marmite!” She almost screamed.
    “Ok ok, I can’t say it.” He said guilty.
    “No, I’m sorry I screamed at you. But, I’m just wondering, can you sound out words?” She asked." Btw)

  30. I love week 26. It is very funny.

  31. I like your week 26.
    It was fun to read because of its humor.

  32. Week 26
    Hiya Emma. This was such a great read. I can tell you like to read and write because you followed the correct format for a long conversation. It was easy to follow, which shows you are a good writer. You are really good at letting the reader know how your characters are feeling. This is because you use adverbs like 'impatiently' and 'guilty'. Very well done! Have a great week!

  33. Congratulations on your response to this week’s challenge Emma. I liked the premise of learning how to say marmite. You punctuated the conversation accurately, so it was easy to read. I particularly liked your careful selection of vocabulary. I enjoyed reading your text this week. 😊

  34. Hi Emma, I loved your response to the prompt of week 26! It was a good mixture of creative and funny. Your dialogue and the tone created between the two characters was excellent, it all flowed very well and I enjoyed how the questioning became flipped around at the end.

    Keep up the good work, Anna (Team100WC)

  35. I loved your week 26
    it was very fun to read!
    and you added a perfect amount of dialogue and the narrator said the right words at the right time!

  36. Emma, I like how your Week 28 story was kind of sad. I also like how you use "as it let out a pitiful howl." From, Elliott

  37. Emma,
    Your week 29 story is very good! I like how you wrote "I felt like I had been walking forever..." Very good!
    Gemma Sela🌺

  38. Emma,
    Your week 31 100 word challenge was really good! It felt like you based yours off of Winnie and her family in Tuck everlasting. Nice job!

  39. Hi Emma,
    I liked your week 31 because it was like Winnie trapped in a cage and wants to see what's out in the world. Keep writing. Crosby

  40. Hi Emma,
    I really enjoy your style of writing. Week 33, where you write, 'Watching the waves slap the beach shore as the wind whipped my face'. is particularly powerful. Well done!
    Michelle, Team 100wc,
    Melbourne, Australia

  41. Emma,
    Nice work with your descriptive words in your week 33 story.
    Keep up the awesome writing,
    Gemma Sela🌺

  42. Hi,
    I really liked how you did you week 33, i also liked how you did all of the description.
    Natalia ortiz

  43. Hi Emma,
    I really liked your 100 Wc week 35. I love how you used he phrase in your story. I would have never thought of doing that. I liked the line that said "I was trying to hide how confused I was." Great job!
