John Marsden Writing Topic #571
Write in the voice of someone negative.**
Everyone was talking about their plans for the evening at work all day.
Some planned on getting cozy in beds and reading, some cozy on their couch and watching TV, others were planning on doing a jigsaw. I had no plans.
I had no plans because they were ruined by what was happening outside.
Now I’m outside, waiting for the bus, feeling my hair and shoulders getting more and more drenched, which was reminding me of what I was missing out on – a picnic with friends I hadn’t seen in forever.
Now all I can do is go home and have a cold dinner.
I hate bad weather and I hate my life.
