Month Away – April (05.04.’16)



“Instead of writing down everything that happens in your day, give your day a twist by fictionalising it”
“Practise using the 6 elements of story: Action, Description, Dialogue, Introspection, Emotion, and Exposition”

The neighbours girl barged through the garden, as the lego sisters sat atop the palm branches, picking lice out of their childrens’ hairs. “May I help you?” … “quick, you ‘ave to ‘elp the pizza man, ‘is leg’s caught in the electric gate”.   We crept to the scene, with Koala crawling behind. “What’s going on?” A nosy Tickle waddled down Nemo’s porch.  Gremlin feet could be spotted from under the picket fence, and a lot of voices.
“someone hold the cat”.
The older kids pushed through the crowd
“Don’t waste the crumbs dear” Grandmother joined in as well.
“We need to help Pizza Man!”
PizzaMan lay holding on to his knee. “you little buggas” “Quick, press the button!” 

“Who cares about the cat, we need to help Pizza Man!”  . Big Lego realised something was wrong when he first sighted the scattered onions, and olives on the ground.  There were no cries or pleas, just a green trouser caught in the gate. He pulled his shirt off, and bit onto the cuffs. “I knew it”.
The 3 sisters gawked as Middle Lego’s Pomadoro timer was elbowed to the ground with a thud. The silence closed off the highway for the afternoon.
The poor man was rescued from under a rubble of kids, who were picking eggplant off his pizza. “Thank you” he headed off, on his 2 wheel cart, the pizza flapping to the excitement of Yabbi. After banging the door shut, Big Lego turned to face his people “You’re in big trouble”. The 12 year olds plugged their ears, and posed to get their picture taken, chewing bubblegum, like childish rats.
“they’re children after all” His sister suggested, poking him in the arm.
“No, that’s no excuse”.
Big Lego lunged at Middle Lego with Koala’s plastic knife.
