The Saturday Mix is Sarah’s challenge over at weejars.
Please leave your pingbacks and links to her post and have fun.
This week we are diving into the depths of PERSONIFICATION. Our challenge is all about the use of personification in our writing. You will need to use the statement provided in your response – which can be poetry or prose.
Our statement using, personification is:
– As he began the test, all words and ideas fled from his mind.
He was confident as he entered the room and set his writing materials in front of him.
The papers were face down on the desk, and the large clock was rhythmically ticking away the seconds.
He remembered the advice to take his time, read the paper through at least once before deciding on the questions to answer, then having answered his choice, read them through again just to make sure he hadn’t forgotten anything.
‘You have two hours to complete the test. No talking, no referring, and should you need assistance for any reason, simply raise your hand and the adjudicator will come to you.’
Pause, as the second hand touched the 12………….
‘You may begin……………..’
There was a rustle of papers and scratching of nibs from the others in the room, but it was always the same. As he began the test, all words and ideas fled from his mind, and he was once again faced with another failure.
