A character’s body movement - a study by Alicia


Thank you so much for sharing your super-duper writing, Alicia.

Recently, you have been working hard on using figurative language and starting sentences in different ways, and these now appear perfectly in your writing. Now, you have turned your attention to show the detail in how a character moves.

For example, in the second paragraph, you describe her feeling hot (and you use a simile and start the sentence with an -ing verb). Then, you develop this and describe her peeping through curtains and then she removes her spacesuit.
This is excellent - so much detail in a short space of the text.

Well done!

She heard footsteps approaching to her as fast as a leopard. She hid inside the book as flat as a pancake. After several minutes, the library was as quiet as an enchanted forest that you could hear a pin dropping onto the floor. The sky outside the library was midnight-black coloured. Suddenly a hole appeared in the book that shows what the book was about but only in a film. She went in ……
