Shipwrecked

As I lay there, listening to the gentle sound of the waves lapping against my body, I remember the last time I sailed on the glistening sea.
It was a stormy night and I couldn’t control myself. Then I saw it. I hit the iceberg with such force that I began to stagger along the surface of the ocean, fighting with all my might to keep above the dark depths. Tossing and turning, I used up every inch of my remaining power to surge up onto the rocks. My eyes closed drowsily. I was so exhausted that all I could do was lay there, sprawled lifelessly on the boulders, until help arrived…
But I am still here.

  1. I can see you’ve thought carefully about the vocabulary in your story Jennifer and have chosen some powerfully descriptive words to help your character recount her tale. ‘…sprawled lifelessly on the boulders’ is such a rich phrase for example and helps the reader feel they’re living the experience too. I wonder if being shipwrecked can have a positive side? What do you think?
    Well done and keep rising to the Challenge.
