Writing Challenge – Using connectives

 

Hey everyone, here is a short descriptive piece of writing.

As  I was walking through the humid forest I feel the heat pressing against my skin. Firstly I started off at the beginning of the forest where all the trees are fully green and extremely lush. The reason why I went on this imaginative journey is because I love the humidity and the loneliness of forests. As I keep walking a long the bridge it starts to become unsteady and more intriguing.  I can hear the cheeping of of the birds just above me.  The rustling of the bushes keep me alert on this interesting journey. I watch the animals go past me carelessly doing whatever they need to do. There are broken branches around me that I step over. However the branches give the forest a  unique feeling. At  first  I thought a dinosaur was creeping up on me but thank good it was just a large bird! All of a sudden my legs start to ache so I sit down. Once I had rested for a but I decided to turn back. Out of no where a see a few rangers gathering people because the national park is started too close. I try to hurry out of the forest so I can go home. As I walk back home I think to my self about the forest and how amazing forests are.

I hope you liked it!
