Writing: 5 - 7 - 10 Writing | Week 8 | The Tunnel

This week for writing, we were asked to write a description for our 5 - 7 - 10 Writing. 5 - 7 - 10 Writing is when you write as much as you possibly can for 5 minutes. Then you would talk about your story to a friend, and read your story to them. You would do this for 7 minutes. Finally, you would edit, and complete your story in 10 minutes, and have it shown to your teacher. Although unlike last times 5 - 7 - 10 writing, we were to write a setting description, rather than a character description. Our subject of this weeks 5 - 7 - 10 was The Tunnel. Which showed a picture of a tunnel  formed by trees in a forest. This was an awesome subject to write about, giving me the perfect opportunity to add in a lot of words that I would never use of a daily bases. Using words like perambulate, rather than walk. This let me write and an epic setting description about the tunnel.


The Tunnel

I see the dark, oak wood trees surround me. There are bushes, expanding around the
trees, and stumps of the forest foreground. The trees curling around the corner of a large
rock, blocking my perspective of the sun. The rough edges of the rock, smoothing the
closer I get. The grass swirling around each tree, growing longer and longer, by the
second. Broken branches then start to heal, growing faster than a cheetah running across
a long, blank, grassy field. “This is a mysterious place,” I say to myself. I then see the
trees arc into a circular formation, forming a tunnel for me to stride through. The tunnel
advanced for a very long time, as if the tail of the tunnel was getting smaller and smaller.
The tunnel then goes dark, as a silence fills the forest. Then the tunnel suddenly brightens
up, and there is a visible door at the very end, with nothing to provide information for
what may be on the other side.

  1. Hi Jack, it's me Sanujan.
    I am really impressed by your amazing 5 - 7 - 10, setting description. I also love all the scientific and technical words you've added in your writing, also I like the first groups of three. "Broken branches then start to heal, growing faster than a cheetah running across a long, blank, grassy field." As far as I know I can not notice any mistakes on your amazing 5 - 7 - 10 writing.

    Keep Up The Fantastic Work
