Student Writing Wednesday: Jose’s “Neptune Story”

“I left cameras on Neptune so I could keep an eye on my old computer.”

One day I made an ice ship that was freeze-proof. The inside was made of metal. It took me ninety hours to build the ship. I was tired because I didn’t sleep or eat anything. I was excited to go to Neptune to throw away my old computer, so I could buy a new computer to study Neptune.

When I got back to Earth, I studied the ice on Neptune. I left cameras on Neptune so I could keep an eye on my old computer. I wanted to see my old computer freeze and decompose. It took ninety days to see the screen break and crack. I lost all of my computer data. I miss my old computer.
