Cluck Kent and Lois Path
This time of year brings back memories of the writing experience that first cultivated the "love of writing" in me.
I was in 5th grade and in white chalk (this was the day of black boards) the teacher wrote:
Write a story starting with this sentence "One day I was face to face with a musket . . . "
I wish I had the foresight to keep that piece, but I didn't. I do, however, remember a little bit of how it goes.
One day I was face to face with a musket . . .
I went on to tell the story of a young and strong turkey named Cluck Kent. World famous Bawkporter Lois Path found herself looking down the barrel of a musket. Cluck Kent sensed trouble was afoot and our hero dashed into the nearest hollow log to emerge none-other than Super Hero extrodinaire SUPER TURKEY!!!!!!!! Super Turkey was able to get the musket away from the hunter and saved the day. THE END
I had so much fun writing the story, and the teacher and my parents gushed over my paper and Voila! The seeds of "writing-joy" were planted.
Thanks Super Turkey and Mrs. Whatsyourname for my my 5th grade Thanksgiving writing assignment.
