Elaine (caladhiel) I thought it would be fun if we could have a paragraph contest. We would select a prompt and then you would have to write a paragraph on it. If you have any ideas or prompts, here's where to share them!

Jesi (zoebabii328) | 2 comments How about writing a little paragprah describing something without actually saying what it is, just showing it. (Prompt I just did in class lol)

I'll start:

I was upstairs on the computer when I smelt the savory aroma drifting from the kitchen. I let the scent guide me downstairs, where I saw it. The light brown, fluffy chassis was illuminating the senses, tempting me to relish in its perfection. It feels velvety and smooth. As I cut it open, smoke rises from the saccharine center. As I chew, I nibble on the pulpy liquid with hints of cinnamon and apple. The feathery crust adds an earthy texture. I eat slowly, to relish in its absolute satisfaction.

I love this paragraph! It pulled me into to a word picture complete with stimulation of my scences. Thanks! Malika
