  1. This is what I came up at my writer's group meeting:

    Little Sally Mae wandered about in the backyard while her mommy was sitting at the kitchen table sipping a cup of coffee and reading her grown up book. Sally didn’t understand why mommy liked looking at pages with a bunch of mixed up letters and no pictures. She wished Mommy would read her the story of the three bears and Goldilocks.

    She twirled her stringy hair with her finger while carrying her ragged teddy bear. “I wish I had long yellow curls like Goldilocks.” she said to the bear. “I’m hungry. Let’s see if we can find where the bears live. Maybe they’ll have some porridge to share. But we won’t be like Goldilocks. We’ll ask nicely first and we won’t break baby bear’s chair.”

    She dragged the stuffed animal with his torn ear and stitched up eye along the side of the house where the hedges grew high. A bird hidden between the branches let out a tweet.

    “Shh. Teddy. We are deep in the woods and danger is all about. Against the house , The hose coiled as if a rattler posed to strike. A small scream escaped from Sally and she fell back.
