John was very interested in insects; big ones and small ones, skinny ones and fat ones.
One morning, John went outside to look at what bugs he could find before lunch when he discovered some cockroaches under a rock. Cockroaches fascinated John because he knew that they could live without a head for as long as a week and also because they were massive in the movie Men In Black, which was his favourite movie. Cockroaches were his most loved bug. He went to pick a handful of them up and they flew away, then he thought to himself “I didn’t realise they could fly.”

Hi Michelle,

I thought that this was a lovely and very intriguing response to the prompt for this week. You had a very smooth, flowing narrative, as well as good language techniques that added to the story (for example, I enjoyed your first sentence that included a list to provide more detail). Although I’ll admit that I am quite squeamish around insects and bugs (especially cockroaches), I did however, thoroughly enjoy reading this piece.

Well done and keep up the good work!
