It is really cool and you feel nervous. In the beginning, the slide is really slow, and you may feel bored. After that, the slide goes faster and faster. All of a sudden you just know that you’re plunging down, all you can see is blurry stuff because you’re plunging down too fast and flying up again. Then, you enter the pool with a “SPLASH!”.

The Write Path is a writing competition which started in the UK in 2008 and now involves students in schools around the world. Well known authors provide the opening paragraph and then teams of students work together to write a progressive story.
Schools will be given a timeslot on one day, with our school being allocated 1-2pm on Monday, October 11. At this time, the students involved will come to the library and will read the author’s opening to the story. In pairs, students will then write the next part of the story, before it is passed on to another school to continue.
There will be six different stories, with each pair allocated one story to work on in their allocated one hour time slot.
To participate, students must be aged between 11 and 13.
Schools are encouraged to write a blog post of their own at the end of their time about their experience, and also to upload photos, videos etc.
At the end of the week schools will be asked to vote for their favourite paragraphs and the winners will be sent a trophy.
All of the stories will be published in a book and a copy of the book will be sent to the school. We have a copy of last year’s book in the library if you would like to have a look. All students who participate have their names published in the books as authors of the stories.
Story continuations should be kept short (maximum 250 words), as this prevents the stories from getting too long.

Well, when I was young I usually wet my pants whenever I watch a scary movie, therefore at night I didn’t go to the bathroom because I thought that the yellow monster going to kidnap me! Until now, last Halloween I went to the theater to watch a new horror movie but unlucky for me that, the girl sitting next to me was crying to like she watching a romantic movie, it a good thing that I brought a pack of tissue.
Made sure you buckled your seatbelts, because your arms and legs don’t have the strength to hold yourself against the wind and g-forces, and you will fly off. When the roller coaster cars were doing some tight loops or turns, or stunts, you might feel a force that push you left and right, back and forth, the wind and the g-forces was pushing you, and you will occasionally experienced black-outs, which was when your sight became black and you can’t see anything at all until the roller coaster cars level out, you can slow the black-outs by tighten your muscles.
Made sure you followed these steps when you’re riding in a roller coaster. It sort of like flying a stunt aircraft, or flying a fighter plane in a dogfight.

When poured it out in a cup, I looked down to the bottom, and there were hundreds of dead ants in there. Even though there were dead ants in the bottle, it didn’t taste any different. It was gross and I wanted to puke, but it was the last bottle of coke and I really like coke so I didn’t care. I even drank the ants, it was nasty but I really wanted to try how it tasted.
When I finished the bottle, I thought I would be sick or something. But, I was never better.

Watching horror movies can make you terrified for quite a time, but somehow you still want to know what crazy thing is going to happen next.
Horror movies are one of the things I try to avoid watching, because after watching them I get extremely paranoid and have terrible nightmares! However, every time someone turns on one of those films. I would always be there to stare right at the deadly scenes. When a bloody scene appears, I would always chills down my spine and cover my eyes with my sweaty palms, but still leaving a hole to peak at it. After peeking at it, I would give a little shriek and wished I didn’t ever peak at it. To me, scary movies are one of the scariest things ever, but somehow it hypnotizes me into watching those freaky scenes!
If you scare of someone. Then go to the bathroom to sleep. First, lie the blanket down. Then take some books and music to read or listen to. Then go in, lock the door and read or listen. But if you were in there, maybe you will fell very curious. But I do. After about one hour I can’t stay at there anymore because I don’t know what people doing in out there. Are they worried about me? But you know what! They don’t even go up stairs to see what I am doing up there. Then I have to go down stairs, say sorry to my mom and clean the bathroom.
I went on a vacation with my family to this awesome, big, pretty,five star hotel that has the coolest water park and the funniest arcades. I went to the Great Wolf Lodge hotel. When i finished checking in and unpacked my bags, My family and I went to the coolest water park right away. The first Thing I saw in the water park was the biggest, coolest most awesome Water slide ever! The line was so long though! It took an hour before I could get on the ride! When I finally got on the best water slide, I Was so excited. When I went down the most awesome slide ever, it Was all black inside the tube and the tube kept going in a spiral. Then I saw this shiny light, colorful, shimmering light and the mat was jumping up and down! it was totally awesome and exciting when the light stopped shining I continued going down the cool spiral tube, water started splashing on me and I couldn’t hear anything! When I finally got out, I was so happy that I kept talking and thinking about the water slide the entire day!
When I was just a 5th grader, I always felt scared when I went on games which bring me to the sky. Once, my school went on a field trip to Dai Nam. I was so excited to think about learning or school. I was just screaming like: “Hooray! I don’t have to go to school tomorrow! Yay!!! So I went home and started to prepare what I need for the trip.
The next day, we went to Dai Nam. When we got there, each of us got like 10 tickets to play. I played so many fun games, except Roller Coaster. After playing so many games, I got bored, so I went to the place where people play Roller Coaster to see how they could survive on it. They played and played, and I watched and watched until I thought I was also exciting. I thought: “What if I die? Some of my friends say that it’s very scary. I think I’ll just try.” After that, I went on the Roller Coaster. A security guard looked at me and asked:” Don’t you know what “being scared” means?” I ignored him.
A few minutes later, the Roller Coaster started to move. I closed my eyes so that I won’t look down. When I opened my eyes, I discovered that we were on the top of the Roller Coaster and I thought it wasn’t scary at all. The Roller Coaster started to move again. I had no idea why the security guard was screaming. I thought he wasn’t scare.
When we finished playing, I don’t have enough tickets to play it again but however, it was AWESOME!!!
Taking off in an Airplane
When taking off in an airplane it feels great! The speed prints a smile on your face, the pressure and weight that you feel, I bet that’s your favorite part of the whole flight! Some people can hear the speed outside, and when you look out the window saying good-bye, you might even smell the fresh air outside! All of your emotions take a break, you close your eyes, sit back and relax.
Have you ever faced your scariest fear? I had abseiled down a height of an eight- storey building in the mountains of Dalat. It was the first time I’ve abseiled. When I climbed the mountain to the place to abseil, I was exited. When I got there, I saw that’s too deep so I was very scared. I saw that there were big lumps of rocks for me to abseil down. I was about to say “no.” but because of the fresh smell of cool winds, I tried to abseil down. When I was abseiling down, I heard people say “help” and “cool” because I went with my school, AIS. I abseiled down all the way and waited for other people. All the people abseiled down and said “ouch” I saw they all had blood on them, not me.

There’s just a weird feeling about burying your dead hamster. The sad feeling in your stomach, yet a sign of joy flickers in your mind, thinking that your dear pet will go to a place where hamsters can run free. A place where the smell of fresh nuts is in the air, a place called “Hamster Heaven.” After the burial, a feeling of relief will take effect. That feeling of relief is that you have done what you can during the lifetime of your furry little pet, and did the best you can to ensure a good journey for your hamster to “Hamster Heaven.” Of course, after that, the joy of having another furry little hamster!
Sliding down a water slide in 3 SECONDS
Sliding down a water slide in only 3 seconds. How does is make you feel? To me, it’s horrifying because when you look down it’s a long way down. You can feel the wind blowing into your face. When you ride for the first time it’s really scary but when you are used to it, it will become fun. When you touch the ground there is water and the water flies over your face. You can fly around 1km with that speed. You feel like you are a rocket flying in very high speed.AWESOME!!!!

High fives are good. High tens are great.
Picture it — jaw dropping in slow-motion silence, eyebrows furrowing in mock-angry rage, head slowly wagging side to side, both hands lifting high up top, waiting a brief moment for your friend to answer your call and deliver a booming double palm-on-palm SMACK.
Now that’s a beautiful picture. That’s the happy dial turned to 10. That’s a good day giving birth to a great one. That’s a photo from Appendix A of The Study of The Best Things Ever. It’s just explosive.
Like I said, the high five is good, too. But really, almost anyone can deliver a high five. It’s just one hand! Once you start tenning, the five starts to look wrong, incomplete, and unfinished. It becomes a half, a partial, a sort of, like a flop with no flip, yang with no yin, pong with no ping, or a unicycle.
