Writing prompts for CFG based on Roald Dahl’s Esio Trot:
4. Silly romance: Mr. Hoppy is desperately in love with Mrs. Silver, but he’s too shy to have any chance of winning her heart. It takes Mrs. Silver’s odd wish for Alfie to grow faster for Mr. Hoppy to find a way to win his love. Your prompt: write a story about someone who is in love, who has no chance of winning their love, until an odd, silly, or bizarre circumstance gives them their chance to try.
5. Word fun! Your prompt: Write a story paragraph that uses the words “bask,” “sly,” and “trickster.” Use them so they make sense, but most of all, use them to help us love your story.
