Lost by Emily

Filed Under (General News) by on 25-11-2012 and tagged

Perplexed, scared and shocked I walk further and further down the narrow gloomy path.  As the moon begins to die down the gloomy, narrow , smelly  path.  I was scared, I did not know what to do, as all I remember was being happy in the big sweet shop with my mum buying some cakes for my birthday when …

Black ! I could not see a thing as I found out that my head was in a wet, smelly, damp bag somebody has nicked me.   they put me down and when  I get my baleen’s I take the the damp bag off my head, stood in front of me was a man pointing a knife right at me, I cry  whilst running away from the man.  

And this is how I end up where I am now lost in the streets of the middle of no where.  In the dissidents there hanging on the wall was a pitcher of me saying (LOST HELP US NOW .)  Its been over a week now and I am staving and thirsty and struggling to talk or whisper.  

I decide to walk around to look for some food, but all I have found so far are some mouldy chips out of the dustbin  I see another bin a cross the road withe a try in it.   I run a cross the road with out thinking when a big lorry is flying down the  one way road . 

Lilly has been rushed to hospital we all crowd  around her as her eyes are closed we try not to cry but we all just bus out crying in to tears when a long beep goes off and doctors  come rushing in  and tells us all to go out of the room we look through the window a sit goes quit and the cover gets pulled over her head.

    Emily, I am jumping up and down for joy at reading this story. I am so proud of you for writing this and putting it on the blog. A huge well done to you. All the way through, I was hoping that the character was going to be okay and this made me want to read on. What a clever writer you are.

    To make your work even better, remember to read through your work to check for the full stops (especially in the last paragraph).


  2.   Mrs A Says:

    Wow! This is great. It really hooked me in as a reader and has a really powerful ending. So many emotions developed throughout.
    You must feel very proud of yourself

    I don’t think that there’s a happy part to the story but that’s a really good thing, I think writing in a sad way makes it sound more edgy and makes me think about all the things that are happening. I liked the part how you don’t mention Lilly until the last paragraph, that got me interested in terms of hook because it made me think about lots of questions about who she was and how she fits in with the story. I will show this piece of writing to my class in New Zealand tomorrow morning (its the other side of the world, we have a twelve hour time difference and we are a day ahead!) and see what they think so thank you for publishing it.


  4.   Mrs Hogg Says:

    Hi Emily,
    Wow! You have managed to set the scene really well. It made me feel fear for you and anger towards the man with the knife! It is great to see you writing with such courage and doing such a good job! Well done!

  5.   Mrs Neale Team 100WC Says:

    Emily, you have written a story that is sad, dramatic and exciting. As a reader I have worried for your main character, hoped that there would be a happy ending as we all do when we hear stories that people have gone missing, but you have recognised that sometimes, just sometimes, the ending is tragic. You have shown her fear, and especially her friends’ sadness in your last paragraph.
    Keep on reading, keep on writing. You have a wonderful imagination! Well done.


  6.   Sarah Oxley Says:

    Wow! What a powerful piece of writing. I was gripped right from the start and you keep the reader hooked in with your vivid description. Well done Emily!

    Dear Emily,
    I really liked your story! It is really well written, you have used great wow words, and 3-ed sentences! You have remember everything we have done in class! Well done! Next time, remember to use proper engish, so use kidnapped or stolen, instead of ‘nicked’

  10.   Grace - Maple class Says:

    Dear Emily,
    I really love your story especially the paragraph were you described the bag and about how much ambitious vocabulary you use. Just try to be careful about using only the past or present tense not both. It’s really imaginative and I would defiantly buy it if it was as a
    book – you should write a sequel!
    from your friend Grace in Maple class (


  11.   Mr Webb and Room Five, New Zealand Says:

    We used your story as an example of narrative writing in our class in New Zealand yesterday. Our students have completed a review of your writing (and everyone loved it) and we had to answer some questions about it and pose some questions to you. We have posted about it on our class page at this link here.
    Have a great day.

    This week our class is looking at narratives,
    And I have a couple of questions for you,
    1)What made you choose the title lost?
    2)Did you get to choose what you write about or did your teacher choose?
    3)Was Lilly a human or an animal and if an animal what one?
    Thanks Jamie.


  15.   Ryan Says:

  16.   levi Says:

    did you have any other story ideas?

  17.   Julia Says:

    Dear Emily,
    Wow! I really like your story. I ever knew you were such a good writer. Where did you get your idea from? I really like you have used some 3ED sentances ‘Perplexed, scared, and shocked…’ I also really like you have used show not tell in this writing aswell. You have used so many things we have been learning in class. You had me glued to th screen ALL the way through. Maybe next time you could use some adverbs. Well done Emily, and I hope to see some more of your wonderfull writing on the blog.
    From Julia
