You may remember being asked to rewrite this sentence to make it more vivid and interesting: The leaf was red.
Now your challenge is to rewrite another blah sentence. This time, you are not limited to one sentence. Anything goes. (I am still reading variations on Martha and John at the bus stop, so I know the possibilities are endless.)
I’m curious how far you can go to take this very dull sentence and surprise the heck out of us all. Lots of good writers here! Take the challenge.
