I Can’t Find a Topic! by Raphael

I’m sitting at my desk. On my desk are my pencil case, my pencil, my eraser and my notebook. Around me are all my classmates sitting at their desks. I can hear the scritchy-scratch of pencils on paper. Because of them I can feel my desk jiggling like crazy. I’m holding my head. I’m trying to think of a topic, but as much I’m racking my brain, I can’t think of a thought!
I’m panicking, I’m sweating and inside me my heart is racing! Because I know that if I don’t get started today, I will have to stay in for recess!
Recess is something amazing! It is a moment where you can refresh your brain and also have fun at the same time! In recess you feel the wind against your hair and skin!
So that’s why I really don’t want to lose recess and I’ll have to start right now. Suddenly I look at the clock and I see that I have only 2.03 minutes left!
Finally I really have to stay in for recess. And the only topic I can find, is that “I can’t find a topic”!

  1. Dear Raphael,
    There are many times I struggle to
    find a topic. Also, I liked how in your
    story you ‘showed not told’ how you
    felt, with short but powerful sentences.
    Great story!
    From,

  4. Dear Raphael,
    Your piece was amazing! I really liked how you were saying that everybody else around you were working and you were stuck there looking at the blank page while you were jiggling around.

  7. Dear Raphael,
    I loved your magnified moment. You really showed not told. I agree with you that finding a topic is hard. I’ve wasted 5 pages of my notebook only writing titles. I think you should write more magnified moments.
