The House in the Woods

Filed Under (100wc, Writing) by Mrs. Stading on 24-03-2012

One day this girl was walking into the woods and there she found this little house.  She was running away for no reason.  Then she went into the little house.  It was very, very clean and she decided to stay there.

The owners returned.  There were ten of them and they said, “What are you doing in here?”

She answered, “Nothing.  I just found this house and decided to go in because I had no place to go.”

“Okay,” the owner said.  And then one of them named Joie asked ‘How can I help you?”

She said, “Could I stay here?”  And everyone said, “Why… why yes!”


So happy to help my daughter with her very first 100 Word Challenge!  See more at

I want to hear more! Do the people in the house have good food? An interesting pet? Do they want to go find a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow? Do all ten people have rhyming names?

Great use of dialogue…you are so good at making characters come alive.

Well done Clara. I agree, you have used dialogue really well. I love your final sentence, I can hear the excitement in the characters voices. Try using some connectives to join your sentences together.

Thank you for your 100 WC entry.
