#MsMcLauchlanWrites- Episode 4 The Day the Crayons Quit

I recently purchased a Nintendo Switch Lite and have spent many an hour escaping into the world of Animal Crossing where my biggest concerns are catching fish and butterflies and getting a good price for my turnips.  Everyone needs a little escapism, especially right now.  How does this connect to writing, you may be asking?  After spending hours in the company of my Switch, I couldn’t help but wonder how it would feel about me playing with chocolate stained fingers, or leaving it precariously perched on the arm of my couch. By chance I also picked up the picture book “The Day the Crayons Quite”, and was totally inspired to create a writing prompt where a personal possession writes a letter of grievance, in the style of the crayons in the picture book.

And so, the prompt for Episode 4 was created:

If you’d like to see the entire “write with me” video on this prompt, see below.

Can’t wait to see what gets created with the prompt! Happy reading and writing!
