John Marsden Writing Topic #529
Write a piece in a style quite different to the way you normally write.**
It took me two days to break free. The rough, thick ropes delicately slipped off my limbs once I untied the weak knot.
I sprinted out of the old shed, down the highway, with no plan. I eventually managed to find a man driving a Ute to give me a lift, after flirting with him a little.
I left enough blood to make him think the job was done, he’ll eventually figure out it’s not mine.
Why Nicholas couldn’t just divorce me or at least kill me himself is beyond me. He should have at least hired a smarter hitman.
