Golden Memories - by Caron


Thank you for sharing this piece of writing Caron. You have created a clever title for this - Golden Memories. This is a play on words because the story is about an alchemist turning precious memories into gold, and there is also the main character who has golden memories of his childhood. Well done!

You have created a feeling of tension and anticipation as the character goes into the workshop after 15 years. We learnt new vocabulary in the Powerful Writers' Club, and you have used 'tarnished' accurately and with great effect. You also choose an ending to the writing to keep people guessing. Well done!
