Writing Challenges

***Write a 6 sentence paragraph without repeating -any- word twice, including contractions such as is not, and isn't. The paragraph should make "sense" as a complete paragraph and not be just a series of sentences.

***Write a story using one of the following prompts:

        Three men wearing strange hats follow you and your girlfriend/boyfriend during a school trip. It turns out that your friend is an alien with amnesia, and can't remember a thing. What happens?

       You are at a state park watching a huge motor home pull away. Then you spot a huge purse that the driver dropped as she got in. What happens next?

     As you are going to visit your dentist in a tall office building, the crowded elevator gets jammed between the floors. Several doctors' patients with serious problems are also there. The elevator may not be fixed quickly. What happens?
