Opening Day

SOL

My friend Elsie tried this in her blog last week.  (https://lcinmo.wordpress.com/2015/03/12/we-planted-a-tree/)   She “stole” it from Rose Cappelli.  I love being a “writing thief”.  🙂  I thought I would try it out.  I’m not sure I totally have the right idea, but here is my first attempt.

Opening Day

It was a beautiful day.

It was a beautiful day for Opening Day.

It was a beautiful day for Opening Day, the first game of the season.

Relatives came, from near and far, to enjoy the beautiful day, Opening Day, the first game of the season.

Pitches were thrown.

Bases were run.

Balls were fielded.

Runs were scored.

Unfortunately–

not for our team.

At least it was a beautiful day, this Opening Day, our first game of the season.

  1. Nice use of the taffy sentence strategy. What part do you doubt? You use a technique and mold it to your purpose to create writing that is memorable. Sorry it wasn’t a win for the team, but it was a win for you in writing today. 🙂
