100 word challenge: My mythical creature

Skrinkle: A mythical creature that can fly, but only up to 10 metres in the air. It has no wings but uses its amazing power of mind to lift itself and other things into the air. It is light purple with yellow eyes, and it looks like a cat with an eagle’s head and a scorpion’s tail. It is about half a metre long. It has claws and a beak and it also has fur. If you look at it straight in the eye, it will turn invisible for 3 seconds. It eats mice and cornflakes. Its predators are Lions and Fearlangers, which are monsters that you can only see in your peripheral vision.

  1. What an impressively detailed description Hamish. I’m not sure whether I’d be fascinated to see a Skrinkle, or terrified of its scorpion’s tail. Hmm, I think see a possible sales opportunity: mice-flavoured cornflakes!
    Well done and keep rising to the Challenge.

  2. Hi Hamish I really liked the text that you wrote. one thing that you did well on is the description of the beast. I would love to see a skrinkle!
