Hello and welcome to week four in this story-telling adventure.
My ‘test’ if you will, to knowing if I’ve succeeded in my quest to capture the story, will be that if I can just quote the journaling I’ve used on the page and not need/want to add anything here in the post to explain it further, then I have done it, I’ve got all the bits of the story down.
Here’s the story from this page –
I wasn’t really looking forward to the night that it was going to be just Mum, ma and Buddy at the cottage. I was sleeping in the downstairs twin room. We woke really early having survived the night. Went out for a great long walk on the beach saw the low moon and the sun rise. Then we went back to bed. I had a good book. The dog had his choice of three spots to snooze and a cup of coffee in my fav orange mug. Buddy settled for snuggling up to my leg and we spent a quiet hour in heaven. A peaceful, gentle and perfect star to a lovely day in one of my favourite places.
The takeaway from story number four/Would I add anything more?
Where do I begin! Actually it’s not that bad but I’ve mixed up sentences and it doesn’t make sense all the way through. But I guess the reason behind making the page is there though even if it is not grammatically correct. So drafting needed – again! I think should have added the reason why I wasn’t looking forward to that night but that isn’t really the story here so maybe best left out?
Anyway a good learning exercise this week.
52 stories is a year long series or adventure in my story telling. Can I get the whole story onto a layout? Am I telling the stories I want to tell? Read the inspiration post here.
