Slow writing challenge

One night I was walking through the dark woods. The clouds were as grey as dust. Will I ever find home again? It was frightening I could have screamed. CRACK! was that a stick or a bone I had just stepped on? My watch said seven o’clock but because it was so dark it felt much later.

  1. A very powerful piece Mollie. I agree with Niamh; the sudden crack makes the reader wonder what has happened – and the way you ask yourself the question afterwards adds to the suspense.

    I’m sure we could improve ‘One night’ as a sentence starter…what do you think?
