100wc week#6

“I heard that at the bottom of this lake there was a magic portal,” Jace said. I didn’t know how I could trust him, with that grin as sly as a fox’s!

But I did. I turned to face the water, and it simply stared back at me. A magical portal, how cool does that sound? Breathing in, I dived into the green water.

Only then did I figure out that this portal was about as true as a flying pig. My head hit a large log, and I could hear Jace’s snicker behind me. Why did I trust him?

  1. Hi there Phoebe,

    I loved reading your post this week, so much that I will read it with my class tomorrow! What lovely vocabulary choices you made and your simile and sentence starters show a well-crafted piece of writing. Sometimes 100 words just isn’t enough, I would love to read more of your work. My only other comment is that foxes is plural of fox, I think you wanted fox’s grin. Well done creating an imaginative and thoughtful 100 word challenge entry!
    Sarah, Team 100 WC

    And I love the way you’ve chosen to include figurative language this week-great work!


  3. Hi Phoebe,
    I like the use of figurative language and the choice of vocab that you used.
