Daily Prompts- The competition

The freestyle writing competition gave them the option of choosing their genre and topics. Amanda wanted to win the praise of her mentor and teacher Mrs. Clarke. She also wanted her be proud of her achievements. She was after all one of the few students that were chosen for this competition, which was held once a year. The aim was to select those who had an aptitude for writing and expressing themselves well in written word. Amanda didn’t worry her head about winning the cash prize. She was confident that she would be declared the winner.

Head, Cash, Worry





Word of the day Challenge;
