Hi everyone! Tomorrow I start school so my posting schedule is going to be changing. I can’t believe how fast the summer went! Today is Creative Challenge Day 🙂 If you are not familiar with Creative Challenges, then here’s a run through: Creative Challange is a weekly challenge run by Cynthia Dawn. You can check out her blog here. Creative Challenges happens every Tuesday and Friday and is received by email. One challenge is for everyone and the other is exclusively for her email subscribers. Cynthia simply sends you a prompt and you make a story using a personal experience or like I do, a story with a fictional character.
Today’s prompt: Life is Speeding past you. How do you keep up?
The name’s Max, Max Willis. I’m just your average middle school boy. Crazy, obnoxious, and sports crazy. I play baseball for the school team. The New Orleans Raptors. I’m the star pitcher. My sister Savanna plays volleyball for the New Orleans Newts. Don’t ask me why the chose a name like that for a volleyball team! Savanna and I love to volunteer at the local library by shelving books. Savanna’s a total bibliophile. Me, I think I’ll stick to my comics. As you can imagine, life has really been speeding by. Summer’s already over and tomorrow I’m starting 8th grade. Savanna’s starting 10th, and our little brother Harper is starting preschool. Of course our mom is babying him way more then she needs to.
I have all my school supplies ready and by my mom’s orders, my outfit for tomorrow laid out. Oops I guess I forgot to mention that I already have started playing football and have practice after school tomorrow. I have no idea how I’m going to juggle volunteering, homework, school, football practice… The list goes on and on. Life is just going by too quickly. It seems like just yesterday, Harper was learning to walk. Now he’s on his way to preschool to make some friends.
“MAX! DINNER TIME!” Oops I better get going. Mom’s making her famous baked potato salad and I wouldn’t miss it for the world. Rushing down the carpeted stairs, I pause to check out my new hair cut. Hopefully Zoe will dig my new do!
“Ughhhhhh, Max! How slow can you be? My sister Savanna is almost 16 and she acts like it. Her phone is always in her right hand. She’s always texting her friend Sarah; and of course her boyfriend Chris. Mom doesn’t like us writing at dinner. See you soon!
Finally I’m back! Mom got me a calendar to hang on my wall. She told me to use it to organize my week. Savanna just rolled her eyes. She has everything organized down to her sock drawer. I guess that’s how I’ll keep up with my crazy life. My brother Harper already has an admirer. Figures, he’s been a ladies man since he started going to daycare at 2 months. My life is a crazy whirlwind of activity, but now I can keep up thanks to my mom and her clearance shopping.
Thanks for Reading and Stay tuned for next week’s Creative Challenge Day that takes place every Monday.
