The safety on concret

DADWAVERS

DADWAVERS
(Treasure)

The junk was piled to the brim, scrap metal, decrepit cars and unwanted things is all around. The huge smell of rotten eggs files your lungs. Crash, she threw away the teapot with no interest in it at all. “No, not this,no not that either” she whispered to herself as she searched through the pile of junk. In the middle of nowhere was a junkyard, Esther was allowed to find treasure in peace and without eyes following her. Slowly she opened the music box. Only daring it would be what she was searching for. 30 minutes ago she was setting up this marvellous contraption. Now this contraption was completed, she used every thing she found this day. “I wonder what I’ll do next ...”

Reflection:
I like how to used the DADWAVERS mnemonic to let me use all the language features like dialogue and a rhetorical question. I need to use this mnemonic so I have more detail in my piece of writing.
