Extended Writing
Think of a time when you felt as though you were in a void or when you saw something that happens seldom. Write a paragraph about this.
It was in my summer sport cricket last season.  I got out and I had only got about 10 runs in my innings.  With about 4 games to go I somehow stepped up and got not outs and 20-30 runs each game.  I also bagged a few wickets in these games as well.  It turned out to be a good end to the season for me.
