Extended Writing
Think of a time when you felt as though you were in a void or when you saw something that happens seldom. Write a paragraph about this.
When I scored  two goals in Saturday football in two weeks that's more than I had scored last season. Also In softball when I caught someone out I hadn't caught any one out last season or this season because the ball would never come to me and when it I caught it.
