My Growlery - 100 Word Challenge




“Get into your room” shouted mum.

“It’s not fair” I shouted back as I stomped into my room, slamming the door.

I always get the blame even when it is my younger brother that goes and makes a foozle of everything.

But what mum doesn’t know is that I love my room.  I can make my very own growlery, away from the noise and mithering of my brother.  Where I can grab the blankets from my bed and create my own secret hideaway. 

There will be no brabble going on in here; it is just me and my toys.

Bliss..

This post is part of the 100 Word Challenge hosted by The Heads Office, for more great posts head on over.

Definitions

Brabble – paltry, noisy quarrel
Growlery – place to growl, private room, den

The seamless inclusion of all the prompts in an everyday scenario makes me think you use these sorts of words every day! Very natural flow to your style.

This one really makes me think of my husband- he saya he thought being sent to his room was the best punishment. 'Oh great...the room where all my toys are-OK!'
Fab! Xx

I like the story, especially the realistic portrayal of kids everywhere, who could truly benefit from using their own growleries well.

Sally-Jayne said...

This was fun. I agree with everyone else, this really makes me want my own growlery. The words were used seemingly effortlessly too.

I really like the way you have used the words in a positive way. I would rather like to have a space like that!
