“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”
Eng glanced at the draw, his head sloping back and forth, back and forth. He pulled his eyelids, and then jabbed at the mattress above.
“We should eat something” Hover said.
“No” Eng frowned at his finger, “There’s no time”.
Hover slid down his bunk, “You’re not that busy”.
“Come on”. He said, offering his hand.”Trust me, all it takes is that ONE step”
Eng groaned, then turned to his right. “I didn’t sleep until 2”
“And you say there’s no time to eat?”. He said, poking Eng’s arm.
“Mmm” he said, smirking underneath his quilt “Yes”
Hover shook his head, and stood up. “Fine”. He drew open the curtains, and leaned out the window, closing his eyes and taking in the air. “Ah” he said, after the big breath, “this always stings.” He then moved to the corner to iron. Eng ruffled in bed. The sunlight moved from one window to another, and Hover still hunched over his ironing board.”By the way, Hover” he said, from under his quilt. “Those bikkies were delicious “
Hover placed the iron and looked up. “Bikkies?”
“mm”, said Eng, “Almond ones”
