I'm finding that writing contests are a great way to get inspired! So here's my entry in Vivian Kirkfield's
#50 PRECIOUS WORDS WRITING CHALLENGE
In honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday, Vivian is having us write a story using only 50 words, unlike Dr. Seuss who used limited words over and over again. Get it? Two different approaches to a fun writing prompt that I suggest you try!
So here's mine, inspired by what I do a my job all the time - try to entice young readers! Whether it's getting the shy one to come to storytime, or getting new readers to challenge themselves in a new genre, I spend a lot of time connecting kids with books. It's my passion! Thanks for reading!
I Heard a Roar
Mama said, story time?
It’ll be fun.
You’re friends are going in-
I watched them run to the door. I stayed near Mama.
She might read one you’ll like?
Maybe dinosaurs, boats?
I’ll be right here.
I walked to the door. I heard a roar.
