Martha in Year 8 at The John Roan School runs their Creative Writing Club and invited me to join their lunch time sessions, now that they’ve moved online. She gave us a 15 minute writing prompt, challenging us to personify the Corona Virus.

I filled this page of my notebook during the session and it was motivating to know that we were all ‘in it together’. I enjoyed listening to how everyone else interpreted the challenge and felt supported when it came to sharing my own writing.

I am using this online space to develop my narrative. I was inspired by Emer’s descriptive use of language and know that is something I need to flesh out in this story.
