Sentence a day

Her Sentence

She saw her long, thin arms waving to keep the blackbirds off--the fight had begun.

From Indian Captive by Lois Lenski.

The author uses dashes to show what is happening with the girl as she is waving the blackbirds away.

My Sentence

Jess saw his tiny, young sister gasping to keep the air in--the attack had begun.
