Action prompt: Crafting an origami crane

After each drawing an action prompt provided by someone


else in the class, we had to immediately draft monologues that
had something to do with our action prompt. I created the
following 8-year-old character in approximately five minutes
of free consciousness writing. (She has a lisp and can’t say
“R’s.”)

Misses Moffett is the wowst teacher in the histowy of skool. I hate


owigami. Dumb paper cwane that I can’t fowld. I’m gonna fail the
second gwade. I know it ‘cause she’s gonna fail me. Hated me
evah since the second week of class when I cwacked open the glass
gel cwab her daughter gave hewr. Made me go get the bwoom
from Mister Mowales, the janitow, and clean it up myself. She
makes me so sad. I tried to clean up the second gwade bathwoom
once with papew towels and watew to make hewr like me mow,
but all I got was chicken pox. Misses Moffett didn’t even make me
the guest of honowr at that month’s supew cititzens’ pawty on
duwing wecess. What is wrong with hewr? Maybe I should tell my
Mom. Maybe she’d make sure I gwaduawated to the thiwd gwade.
