In writing we got shown a short animation clip, ''Powerless'' (link below) we could retell the story or tell it from one of the characters perspective. I chose to be the inventor of a robot. Our criteria was to:
- Use a very short sentence.
- Start your sentence with an AAAWWUBBIS (Opener sentence)
- Ly start – Start a sentence with a ly adverb.
- Em – dash. A dash is used to set off information in a sentence with dramatic flair.
- The subject sentence. Start your sentence with the subject. (Interrupter)
Here I lie, asleep in my small, rustic cottage in the middle of an abandoned, dry forest with my robotic friend listening to the chirping crickets and the creaking cottage - no power. No food.
I awake to see him gone. I rush outside with my woollen coat and glowing lantern. Following the noises until reaching a river, I see he is struggling to lift a log off one of the many small dainty fairies that brings him to life.
Quickly, I rush over to help. We pull and pull. The fairy fluttering above me, the robot falling to the ground. Out of the robot shoots out a golden fairy. If only there was a way my robotic friend could come to life without magic. I give up.
Suddenly, as I was making my back to my cabin, I hear the noises of footsteps getting closer and closer. The robots dappled lights shines through the spindly tree branches.
In through the rustic cottage door comes the robot. Maybe after all my robotic friend doesn’t need magic to come to life.
