The Faulty Launch by Nathan

Today will go down in history lads, we will be going to planet Knowhere for the first time in history.

Jack, you’re the main man, you tell the crew what to do once you are in space.

Okay! Okay! now get into you seats.

Jack and the crew left to go to the rocket.

So, are you nervous Jack?

No, I’ve gone to other planets before.

Cool, it’s my first time.

They got on the ship and 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, o! Launch off. B..bu.bu..bu when it just wouldn’t take off it was hopeless.

  1. Hi Nathan
    I love the style of this 100 word challenge and how you’ve written it almost like a play with the dialogue going back and forth between the main characters. Right from your opening line you manage to create a great sense of excitement with everyone getting ready to head off to Planet Knowhere (great name!) But then the damp squib when the ship just wouldn’t take off. Well done. You used the prompt very creatively to add a twist to your story. Keep up the great work writing for the 100 word challenge.

  2. Hey Nathan I really liked the piece, but who is Jack ? Where did he come from, and who is talking to Jack? Anyways I really liked the piece like a lot. So just keep up the great work.
