The prompt was "Late at night you find your spouse had left your bed. You get up and view out the window to see a light on in the barn. So you go to see what is out there."
My badly story goes:
"I slowly opened the heavy barn door. Inside the dimly lit room was an elephant.
'How could have it come in here?' I asked myself. Quickly I picked up the broom and made a sweepingly motion toward the beast. The pachyderm had a beautifully embroidered run on top of its' back. Slowly I approached the large animal and fondly reached out to touch its' roughly dry skin. the elephant started to crotch awkwardly and rested on its' haunches as if it had been thoroughly trained to take on passengers. Carefully I placed my foot upon its' ear and jumped hesitantly up onto the back of the elephant. Gaily I shouted 'HO' and the pachyderm quickly rose up. Out of the barn we strode silently into the night."
I realize that I have used 'slowly' twice and 'roughly' is improperly used but this exercise shows you what you should be aware of. And I noticed I didn't even discuss where my spouse was.
