I’ve mentioned in a previous blog post how my daughter’s class is given a weekly writing prompt and required to write a page on the topic. This week the prompt was: Imagine you are flying aboard a giant candy cane. Describe where you are going.
The resulting story was so fantastic I told her I would share it in my blog today. So, here it is. My daughter’s first published work.
The Christmas Surprise - by Faith Wilsted
Once upon a time I was flying aboard a giant candy cane when suddenly the plane broke down. I fell and fell and fell until I finally fell with a big splat into what seemed like a big pitcher of milk. I saw the candy cane airplane land in it too. I stuck out my tongue and took a taste. Pretty good, I said to myself. Then I found an island of a really huge marshmallow, climbed up, curled up and fell asleep. When I woke up the next morning I saw around me on my marshmallow five presents, all to me. And in the distance I heard: Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.
Hope your holidays are as full of joy as Faith’s story.
