Writing stimulus - The Ambush

Story Starter

A low growl could be heard; a rumble that came from deep within the predator like a distant storm approaching.


With shining amber eyes like suns, the cat began to prowl stealthily out of the tall grass towards the tent…


Think about:


  • What might the animal be doing?
  • Where might you find an animal such as this?
  • What is the animal looking at?
  • How might a predator such as this one feel during a hunt?
  • Who is the predator and who is the prey?


Continue the adventure of the predator and its prey.

Try to include some of the Alan Peat 'Noun which/where/who' sentences in your story.
