100WC – Week #1 – Emma

I walked into a cold and eerie place. The ceilings were leaking and mould choked the walls. The floor was damp. There were books for Africa. I was in Buttonville´s disgusting public library!!

I carefully placed my feet on the ground every step, trying to avoid the wet carpet making my shoes soggy.  Suddenly in aisle seven, I saw this strange book with a ripped brown cover. The strange part was it had nothing on it, not a title or the author’s name, absolutely nothing. I picked it up and opened the book but there were no words either. I dug through my bag to try and find a pencil. I didn’t know what to do with this book so I decided to write in it …so, what will I write on this page…

  1. Hello Emma,
    I am certainly impressed by your use of descriptive writing as I imagined Buttonville’s disgusting public library. It shows you understand the power words can have to create pictures in the minds of readers. Very well done.

    My suggestion would be to look at the length of your story. My count was 135 words, a little more than 100 words plus 8 for the prompt.
