John Marsden Writing Topic #42
You’re alone, on a deserted beach. You turn away for a moment. When you turn back your towel has gone. Give four possible explanations for this**
1. A gust of wind blew it away
2. The ocean, or the tide swept it away
3. An animal has taken it (I suppose then the beach wouldn’t really be deserted if there was an animal or animals around)
4. It ran away on its own (in the bizarre scenario that the towel is anthropomorphic)
