A fun game to practice your writing and creativity! (in English and/or Spanish!)

Here is a writing game/activity I use sometimes in my classes.

It is about building a story together. You just have to copy the first sentence (or the sentences already written) and add another one. You can continue the Spanish or the English version. Here you have an example:

Person 1: When Mary woke up, she couldn’t believe what had happened.

Person 2: When Mary woke up, she couldn’t believe what had happened. All the furniture was destroyed and her beloved cats had disappeared.

Person 3: When Mary woke up, she couldn’t believe what had happened. All the furniture was destroyed and her beloved cats had disappeared. She stepped out of bed and slowly made her way to the kitchen, only to discover that...

 

Do you get it? :) There is no restrictions, the story can be totally absurd if you want to!

 

So! Let’s start! (we start with the "same sentence", let's see how it ends!)

English: I had been waiting for those holidays for ages, but I could have never imagined how they would change my live forever.

Spanish: Llevaba mucho tiempo esperando aquellas vacaciones, pero nunca me podría haber imaginado que me cambiarían la vida para siempre.

Let's see how it goes :)

I had been waiting for those holidays for ages, but I could have never imagined how they would change my live forever. That morning I woke up very happy, with the sound of my favorite song, and stared to make my travel bag. Finally I could know that is backpacking.

Llevaba mucho tiempo esperando aquellas vacaciones, pero nunca me podría haber imaginado que me cambiarían la vida para siempre. Tuve que levantarme a las tres de la madrugada porque el avión iba a despegar a las siete, a las tres menos cinco sonó el despertador. No podía creerme de lo ocurrido cuando eché un vistazo al despertador.Como ya no me quedaba mucho tiempo,salí de casa sin tomarme nada y  me metí en un taxi.Al llegar al aeropuerto,me encontré con que allí habían colas muy largas en la zona de control de seguridad debido a que se había elevado el nivel de seguridad después de los ataques terroristas.

Don't worry Sudeep! :) It's not a big deal! You can continue it, if you wish.

By the way, your story was interesting too and I really liked the ending!
