Word Crawl: Goblet of Fire

Post by Sky Alton » Tue Mar 07, 2017 8:02 pm

Welcome to the Goblet of Fire Word Crawl!

Don’t know what a crawl is? No problem! It's esentially a writing board game: you write from one instruction to the next to create a story of 300 words or more and it can be about absolutely anything (you don’t have to stick to the Harry Potter theme in any way).
If you’d like to share your story, you’ll earn 20 beans and it will count towards your chance of earning one of our shiny quill and ink awards. You can post it below or if you’re uncomfortable sharing publically but would still like it to count, you can email it to us at hol.bookclub @ gmail.com (without spaces) with the subject line Crawl-Theme-HOL Name. There is no deadline, though if you want to scoop that award, we’ll need it by the end of that particular school year.

Greetings Hol Champion and welcome to the Triwizard Tournament! The writing blocks are longer this time as an endurance test. Are you ready for the three gruelling tasks that lie ahead? Then let’s go!

First task
You enter the ring to face down a terrifying beast: the storyland Longtale. You must retrieve one of the golden, book shaped eggs it guards.
*right 50 words while you try to trick the dragon off her nest*

Ouch! The dragon has caught you a painful blow on your arm with one of her pencil shaped spikes!
*Write another 50 words with only one hand* (If you’re writing one handed already, try using the other one)

Second Task
Having gotten over your dragon inflicted injuries and decoded the clue in the book shaped egg (isn’t reading in the bath relaxing?), you’re ready to dive into the lake.
*Write 50 words as you descend to the Mermaid settlement to retrieve your hostage*

Time is running out! According to the beautiful choral arrangement, you’d better get a move on back to the surface.
*See how many words you can write while holding your breath, then write normally until you’ve got 50*

Task Three
Somehow, you’ve survived nearly being flambéed and a close encounter with drowning. Now there’s just the maze to navigate. Point Me spells at the ready!
*get yourself a compass (or just estimate) and try writing 25 words facing each of the cardinal points. See if the change of view helps or hinders you when writing*

Raise the trophy high for everyone to see!
*Share it with us and let us know if you attempted any of the challenges*

Fluffy's Adventures: Part 3 (The end)

“What wrong with Fluffy?” asked Dustin as he started to bend down to pet the dog.
“No don’t pet him he might bite you.” said Solomon hastily not wanting his friend to be bitten by his dog.
Dustin stopped his hand half way to the dog and straightened back up. “Why would my pal do that to me? What is wrong Solomon?” Dustin asked with a look of concern in his face.
“Fluffy has a walking concussion. The vet said he would be fine, but he is a little scared and a bit hostile right now. I just took him out for a bit of fresh air before I bring him back home. The vet said that all he needed was some rest and he would be back to his frisky old self again.”
“Ah that to bad. I hope he gets better soon.”
“Yeah I hope so too.” Solomon finished his meal and paid the check.
“Well I’ll see you later Dustin make sure to say hi to your family for me.”
“Will do” said Dustin.
Then Solomon and Fluffy went home to watch some television and relax together.

When they got home, Solomon unfastened the leash from Fluffy’s collar and then went to make himself some popcorn and poured himself a mug of soda. Then he put a tape into the VCR and curled up in his Lazy Boy recliner. Fluffy went into his bed and watched the movie from there.
After the movie was over Solomon went to bed, and Fluffy went back into his crate, where they both had a good night sleep.

After a few weeks Fluffy returned to his old self, just as the doctor had said that he would and the man with the orange-yellow coat aka Solomon was very happy that things had turned out so well.

(Ps... I did all of the challenges. However, I can't hold my breath for to long. I really love having challenges either physical or in my writing.)
