Grizzlies and Gold
Write a storytelling introduction for a blog post about a gold digging trip to Alaska.
I stood motionless. Paralyzed in fear.
A grizzly bear.
The sight of him made my blood curdle. His hungry eyes. His hulking mass of filthy, matted fur. I could taste the stench of his foul breath. I could hear the growl of his empty stomach.
I fumbled for my knife. But it was too late. He charged and drove me to the ground. Crushing me.
Everything went black...
Wait. Let's pause for a moment. You're probably wondering where I am and how I got here. (At this point, I'm wondering the same thing.)
It all started 6 weeks ago when I was approached with the craziest idea ever. Prospecting for gold. In the Alaskan wilderness. I would need to be bloody insane!
That's why I said yes.
Sure, I knew there would be dreary weather and fiercely cold nights. And perhaps a vicious bear attack.
But by the end of this story, you'll see that it was all worth it.
