A-Z Challenge: J- Journal Entry

This is part of my A-Z Challenge posts. My theme is emotions but I’ve decided to use the letter J to prompt the writing style not the topic today.

Dear Journal,

I had the craziest dream last night! I was walking home from the park  kicking a rock around and I saw something out of the corner of my eye. I wasn’t sure what it was but I pulled it out from under the leaves and decided to take it home. It was a little dirty so I washed it and it was good as new! I ran to my room and put it in my secret hiding place so no one would find it. I went downstairs for dinner and could hardly eat. I told mom my stomach hurt and I wanted to just go to bed. I got ready for bed and told her I didn’t want to be tucked in tonight.

Once the house was quiet and I knew no one would get up, I pulled it out from under my pillow and pulled the covers over my head. I wasn’t sure how to work it because I’d never seen a real life magic wand before! I waved it around, shook it, hit it on the bed. Then I wondered if it could light up and I found out that you work a magic wand with your thoughts! As soon as I wondered if it could light up, it started to glow!  So then I changed the color by thinking of a rainbow. I thought it would be neat for it to sparkle so I thought of glitter. Then I thought it would be fun to have a room full of glitter so I imagined it and when I opened my eyes everything was covered in glitter! I made mountains of different colors of glitter and tiptoed around the room, climbing up the piles of glitter and sliding down. I was covered in glitter!

I always wondered what it would be like to sit on a cloud so I imagined clouds of cotton candy and floated around my room as I took big bites! Cotton candy clouds are pretty sticky! I needed something to wash it down because it made me really thirsty so I imagined a chocolate fountain! It was in the middle of my room and the fountain turned into a lake with little strawberry boats. I wanted to wake my sister but I knew she’d spoil the fun, 4 year olds don’t know how to be quiet so I’d have to tell her all about it in the morning.

I’ve never ridden a pony so I imagined a beautiful purple pony with turquoise hair with a golden braid. It was the most beautiful pony I’ve ever seen! I fed it candy apples and candy corn. I was starting to feel full and a little sick from eating so many sweets. So I got rid of all of the mess and imagined snow. I made snow angels and a family of snowmen. I was going to have a snowball fight but thought that might make too much noise. Little bunnies came out to play from under my bed. A little polar bear came out of my closet on ice-skates. I cuddled a baby penguin and a curious fox watched us from the corner of the room.

It was the strangest most real dream I’ve ever had. I went downstairs to have breakfast and couldn’t stop thinking about my dream. When mom was brushing my hair for school, she asked me if I used glitter in school yesterday. I told her we weren’t allowed to have glitter at school because it gets everywhere. She said that was strange because I had rainbow glitter in my hair.

This post was written using the following journal prompt for children. I wanted to try to use my inner child to write this. I’m pretty rusty as I don’t let my inner child come out to play as much as I should…

What would you do if you found a magic wand? This prompt was found here.
