John Marsden Writing Topic #502
Write a one hundred-word story in which no word is repeated**
Father always said that when you travel, the best thing to have is a good pillow not mattress. I never understood what he meant until adulthood and was offered sales rep work, being on road everyday—just like him.
Sleeping in cheap motels nearly every second day, their beds are pretty much identical—too hard, soft, uncomfortable, but one item of mine which has been comfortable—my squishy head rest. Even though it’s excruciating away from home, I’ve yet missed an evening’s slumber whilst travelling. Clearly cushions must be effective, otherwise this wouldn’t remain fact. Everyone should try them out.
