Today’s writing prompt comes from Lewis Carrol’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. I wrote my completed excerpt with a Lamy Al-Star (medium nib) using Lamy Blue (cartridges). The prompt is a total of 179 words.
I found out I was scanning my documents using the standard letter size and not the A5 size paper I am using. If anyone wants to know, I am using Clairfontaine Triomphe paper. I may go to double spacing in the near future.
The hedgehog was engaged in a fight with another hedgehog, which seemed
to Alice an excellent opportunity for croqueting one of them with the
other: the only difficulty was, that her flamingo was gone across to the
other side of the garden, where Alice could see it trying in a helpless
sort of way to fly up into a tree.
By the time she had caught the flamingo and brought it back, the fight
was over, and both the hedgehogs were out of sight: ‘but it doesn’t
matter much,’ thought Alice, ‘as all the arches are gone from this side
of the ground.’ So she tucked it away under her arm, that it might not
escape again, and went back for a little more conversation with her
When she got back to the Cheshire Cat, she was surprised to find quite a
large crowd collected round it: there was a dispute going on between
the executioner, the King, and the Queen, who were all talking at once,
while all the rest were quite silent, and looked very uncomfortable.
