Writing Sample

I had just finished a full sized meal, and yet my stomach still seemed to rumble. A feeling of nervousness and excitement slowly crawled up my spine. As I quietly tip-toed backstage, I heard a huge blast of laughter. I gulped. “Must be a lot of people.” I whispered to myself.

It was a hard job being in the production. Your lines have to be learnt perfectly and your expression wonderful. I hope I didn’t mess up every one's hard work. You see, this year I was an actor, in the Production : Webzidazical. And I’d been given the part of one of the judges on Worlds Got Talent. I had learnt my lines thoroughly, so it was completely out of the blue when I found that my tongue was tied in knots.

Shaking, I heard me and the other two actors que and I set off with my clip board to my Judging Table. As I sat down, a bright light shone in to my eyes, making it the tiniest bit difficult to see properly. My acting partners qued me in at the end of their lines, and I managed to spit my line out too.

As the MC of our scene introduced one of the bands, my ears were blasted with the audience yelling, clapping, shrieking, and more yelling. “GO YAR!” one shouted. “WOOHOO!!” another screamed. The three judges all looked at each other silently. After an awesome song sung by Jarna and Jay-Lee, the crowd went silent. I scribbled on to my clipboard “Judging Time”

A few moments later, ‘The Dixie Chics’ (Bobbi Grace & Shaniah) appeared on stage looking as beautiful as ever. As soon as they began to sing, their lovely vocals flowed through the room, as if enchanting us with their music. Every one just sat silently listening to their gentle voices. I wrote in (surprisingly) neat hand writing ‘Amazing’ on to my clipboard. As soon as they’d finished, I had gone def from all the screaming and whistling. Mr Fanua (the judge) would have a hard time dealing with this!

When the audience decided to stop booing at Pale Fanua, the Black Eyed Peas group was called on to stage. I really enjoyed all the hip-hop and rap that they were doing. But sadly, Becky didn’t. I switched back to Becky Green mode before the song ended. For the first time Pale Fanua got a few cheers. And I was drenched in boos and thumbs down. “Whatever” I penciled down again.

Relieved, I walked silently in the dark following my co-actor Isara. Once we were in the foyer, I breathed a huge sigh. “ Man!” I said to Isara, “I don’t like getting booed at!” We both laughed our way in to the changing rooms and got changed for the finale.

As I bowed, covered in confetti, the lights flicked on, and I noticed their were even more people than I thought!!! I was really happy for my close friend Selena who tried out for the first time. She even got the main part! Imagine how nervous she must have been compared to me!

That's when I saw it stuck in the crowd. I had forgotten my clipboard!
