oOn Friday the Panthers were asked to write suspense. But not just any old suspense. Suspense that was carefully crafted to include strong verbs, adjectives, adverbs and 'edingly' sentence starters. That means sentences that start with ed, ing or ly. In other words adverbs. They were also asked to describe through the senses. What could they see, hear, smell, taste, feel. Here are three great examples.
On one stormy night I heard a vicious growl from beneath my bed. Shining my bright torch I gazed for a moment before I realized standing before me was the ghost of my nightmares. It was pure white and slightly see-through. I tried to scream but nothing came out. I felt a drop of rose red blood fall on my head. I looked up and saw a skeleton, chained to my ceiling. I screamed and looked back down and I was shrouded in darkness...
Weird noises and things started to happen at night. I wanted to go downstairs to get a snack. Taking a big breath I opened the creaky, dusty door. When I opened the door I saw a blood blue figure at the end of the hall. It looked like a bunny.
Guess what? The most creepy thing happened last night. Curled up against the damp, creaky and cobwebbed wall, I saw something odd. I smelt danger close by. Flashing bright lights flickered like whizzing butterflies in the air. I heard clashing on the window like somebody was breaking in. Suddenly a fat ugly hand came towards me like a sick snail.
