Gold Diary…quality vs quantity

As a class we have spoken many times about the ‘craft of writing’.
Powerful writing creates a strong image and stirs emotions in the mind of the reader.

In this, your second Gold Diary entry, you must do just that.
Can you put into words what it must have been like for many who travelled to Australia in search of fortune, in search of a better life?

Those that left their home and families behind knowing that there was little hope of returning to their loved ones.

Can you capture that moment?
Can you?

How Clever Is This Script?

Speaking of the dying art of script writing, Abbott and Costello, a comedy duo straight out of the 1940’s ,  say it all. Can you  work out who is on 1st, 2nd, 3rd and the other fielding positions? Listen carefully, oh..and laugh if you wish. Let me know when you have worked it out. You may be rewarded.

  This is a ‘You Tube’ video and as such can only be viewed at home.

For your information: This  very clever comedy routine  is featured in the USA’s Baseball Hall of Fame.
