What Makes Good Writing?

ManiacMagee5One of my cardinal rules of reading as a class is:

Don’t go ahead of the assigned reading.

When kids read ahead, it’s nearly impossible not to blurt out a newfound answer to a question we’ve been wondering about since the beginning of the book.  Such outbursts, while not intentional, can spoil the story for everyone else.  Never has this rule been so hard to obey as with Maniac Magee.  Inspired author Jerry Spinelli is taking us for a wild run with his protagonist, Jeffrey Lionel (a.k.a. Maniac) Magee, and many of us want to keep pace with the boy who can run the length of a football and soccer field  in the time it takes the pigskin to spiral 60 yards.

But I want us to go S-L-O-W-L-Y.  There is so much to digest in this book, including Butterscotch Krimpets and Mars Bars.  I love the language of the story, and we are having fun chasing down all the figures of speech, vivid verbs, invented language, and crazy insults that makes Mr. Spinelli a modern day Shakespeare, in our humble opinion.

Chapter 7 is one of my favorites, and while it’s difficult to settle on only one favorite sentence, this is in the Top Ten Club.

“He was so busy laughing at the runt, he lobbed him a lollipop and the runt got lucky and poled it.” 

That’s Mr. Spinelli’s way of saying, The pitcher was so busy laughing at the little batter that he lobbed him an easy pitch, and the batter hit a homerun.

I love that sentence for the alliteration, the metaphor, and the verb.  That is one high impact sentence.

We made a list of awesome verbs just in this chapter, and we came up with over twenty-five.  That’s an impressive list for a five page chapter.  Here are a few of our favorite verbs:

windmilled          pinwheeling          croaking         jolted        chucking

chickening        yelped                    slithered        swooping     zoomed

This chapter also has the memorable word, “Unbefroggable!”

We invite you to nominate or vote on an “awesome” sentence (check out this post on Huzzah! while you are at it!) for our Top Ten Club.  We’ll tally the results and let you know next week!

  1. The sentence I love is, “He wound up, fired the ball, headed for the plate, and…… what’s this? A legball?” I like this sentence becase legball is not a word. The author made it up.

  2. I like the sentences from page 40. “Amanda took the torn page from Maniac. To her, it was the broken wing of a bird, a pet out in the rain.” Those sentences are from Maniac Magee, and I like them because I can totally relate to that. I think the writing in this book is good because it relates to the feelings that people have in real life. Even though the entire book is a hyperbole, I think that it definetly taps into our feelings. For everyone who hasn’t read Maniac Magee, I recommend reading it. If you have read Maniac Magee, what is your favorite part?

    • I love the sentence you chose, Dia. Amanda’s heartbreak is palpable in this simile. Jerry Spinelli does a great job in this book of eliciting empathy for his characters; our heart breaks right along with Amanda’s for the brokeness of her beloved book. I don’t remember what book this is from, but a simile I have remembered was about a librarian and her desk encircling her like a hoop skirt. I thought that was pretty original and accurate.

  3. I think good writing includes good verbs, creative figures of speech, original ideas, and a wide vocabulary. Many writings can be bland or boring, but you can spice it up with different nouns, more facts, and lots of figures of speech. You can use similies, metaphors, onomatopoeias, hyperboles, alliterations, and idioms. Sometimes on rare ocasions, you can just like the overall book, and it automatically becomes a fantastic novel. How do you show your creativity in your writing?

    • Hi Audrey,
      I think you have a great list of ingredients for good writing. Have you come across any sentences that really wow you in books you have read?
      ~Mrs. Donofrio

  4. Hi Mrs. Donofrio,
    The sentences I love from a book that I am reading are the ones that have good, strong verbs, figures of speech, and ones that I can diagram. What I think that makes writing good is the kind of verbs and the figures of speech an author puts in the book.


    • Hi Louis,
      You described the types of sentences you like; do you have any examples of actual sentences? You may have to hunt a bit for a book you really enjoyed. Then think of the part in the book you liked best. Then reread that section and find the most awesome sentence. It might take a litle work, but it will be worth it to see great writing in action.
      ~Mrs. Donofrio

        • I like both writing and blogging, Blythe. As we were saying the other day in regard to novels and books, “All blogging is writing, but all writing is not blogging.” Are you enjoying the blog?
          ~Mrs. Donofrio

  5. Hi Mrs. Donofrio,
    My favorite sentence is in Maniac Magee. The sentence is, ”Mcnab could already feel his strikeout record fading to a mere grain in the sandlot of history”. I like this sentence a lot because it gives descriptive adjectives and gives good details. Some details are how his record was fading, like a mere grain. This is my favorite part of the sentence. What is your favorite sentence from Maniac Magee?

    • Hi Anthony,
      You chose a great sentence. Here’s another sentence I have underlined with the note “Great sentence!” next to it. It’s about Mrs. Pickwell’s whistle.
      Somehow it had the ability to slip through the slush of five o’clock noises to reach its targets. How do you think your writing will change after reading Maniac Magee?
      ~Mrs. Donofrio

  6. Hi Mrs.Donofrio,
    My favorite sentence from Maniac Magee is on page 46 ” Mrs.Beale called it the miracle on Sycamore Street because he keep his room neat “. The reason I like that sentence is because it seems like something my dad would say. -Sydney

  7. Hi, Mrs. D!

    2 of my all time favorite sentences are from George Orwell’s 1984, and Charles Dickens’ A Tale Of 2 Cities.
    Here they are.
    1).It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen (1984)
    2). It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness. (A Tale of Two Cities)

    What are some of your all time favorite sentences?

    • Hi John,
      Both of these are real attention-getting sentences. I know the Dickens’ sentence is the first line of his novel, A Tale of Two Cities. I haven’t read 1984 since I was in high school, in 1984. Is that the first line of his novel as well?
      Here’s another captivating first line: “Scarlet O’Hara was not beautiful, but men seldom realized it when caught be her charms as the Tarleton twins were.” Do you know the title of this book?
      ~Mrs. Donofrio

  8. Hi its Daniel!,
    If I could wright like Jerry Spenelli I proboably would have a couple of books out. I don’t know how Jerry Spenelli got these ideas. The main Charaecter, Jeffery (a.k.a. Maniac) Magee reads on train tracts lives in deer dens at the zoo and many other amazing things. If you could put one extra amazing thing that Maniac Magee could do, what would it be?

    • Oh Daniel, you have asked an excellent question! Hmmmm. Maniac has already excelled in sports, cleans his room willingly, loves to read, and is nice to little kids. What else can he do? Perhaps he could find a lost pet by tracking it through the woods, smelling the air, identifying his path by broken branches, things like that.
      Let’s throw this question out as a challenge to everyone else. What else do you think Maniac could do? Extra credit to anyone who answers in an appropriate fashion.
      ~Mrs. Donofrio

  9. Hi Mrs. Donofrio,
    The sentence I love is on page 31. “He wobbled once, leaped from the rail to the ground, and took off”. The reason why this is my favorite sentence is because I like the creative use of the verbs wobbled and leaped. What is your most favorite verb on the list above?

    • HI Brandon,
      My favorite verb from your list is wobbled. I can imagine Maniac on the rails while reading this sentence. Have you ever walked on abandoned train tracks?
      ~Mrs. Donofrio

  10. Hey Mrs.Donofrio,
    My favorite sentences are on page 18.
    A chittering. A chattering. And getting louder – yes – chattering teeth. Arnold Jones teeth. They’re chattering like snare drums. And now as if his mouth isn’t big enough to hold the chatter, the rest of his body joins in. First it’s a buzz like trembling, then the shakes, and finally it’s as if every bone inside him is clamoring to get out. A high-schooler squawks: ” He’s got the finsterwallies!”

    I love this part of the book.
    Do you like this part of the book?

    I think that writing is good when it has a lot of figure of speech.

    • Hi Abby,
      I love this part of the book, too. I can really imagine what is happening to Arnold Jones. This has just about every element of fun writing: an invented word, alliteration, a simile, personification, strong verbs, great sensory imagery. Good choice, Abby.
      ~Mrs. Donofrio

  11. Hi Mrs. Donofrio,
    I like the sentence on page 50 of Maniac Magee. “When it seemed the whole world had been created just before he woke up on his bedroom floor – the red brick rows of houses, even the windows resting from faces, the cool, silent sidewalks and streets.” It’s descriptive and gives you an idea of where he is and what he likes. Writing with creative verbs, descriptive adjectives and adverbs, or even just a unique word ( such as “unbefroggable”) are my favorite types of writing. What are your favorite types?

    • Hi Maria,
      I really like to read types of writing that help me imagine what is going on. I also like writing that makes a point about something. You chose a great sentence.
      ~Mrs. Donofrio

  12. Hi Mrs. Donofrio. One of my favorite sentences in the book is, “The book came flapping like a wounded duck and fell at Jeffery’s feet.”. I like this sentence because it is a great simile and good imagery. Jerry Spinelli is a great and talented author who uses a lot of good figures of speech. If you have read the book, what is one of your favorite figures of speech and why?

    • Hi Raina,
      Here is some great personification from page 106, “For most of November, winter toyed with Two Mills, whispered in its ear, tickled it under the chin. On Thanksgiving Thursday, winter kicked it in the stomach.” I’ve never heard of a whole town being personified before, but I like it, and its seems to fit.
      I like the sentence you chose, too.
      Are you enjoying the book?
      ~Mrs. Donofrio

  13. My favorite sentence is ” He stepped up to the plate, wound fired and- what’s this?- a legball?- its got legs- long legs and was pinwheeling toward the plate. I like this sentence because it seems like the author is figuring out the book, as well as the reader. That makes the story more interesting.
    I think good sentences should have these five things:
    1) Good verbs. (Wait! That isn’t a good adjective! How about magnificent verbs? There that’s better)
    2) Creative adjectives.
    3) Descriptive nouns.
    4) Specific adverbs.
    5) Idioms and metaphors to make the reader laugh or get even more indulged in the story.


    • I love your idea of the narrator figuring out this part of the story at the same time the reader is. It makes for some suspenseful reading, doesn’t it? You also wrote a thorough list of requirements for an effective sentence. (I had great as an adjective for “thorough” and good instead of “effective”, but after reading your list, I changed them! You helped my writing. Thank you, Katie!
      ~Mrs. Donofrio

  14. Dear Mrs. Donofrio,
    My favorite book is The Books Of Elsewhere and my favorite sentence from it is ” Sometimes it’s best to keep a mystery a mystery”. What is your favorite book and what is your favorite sentence(s) from it?

    • Hi Baylee,
      ONe of my favorite books is To Kill A Mockingbird. Here is a good line from it, “Before I can live with other folks, I’ve got to live with myself.” Although it doesn’t have any figures of speech or anything “awesome” in the way of language, it expresses a simple and true sentiment. Atticus Finch, who says that line, is one of my favorite characters in literature.
      Who is your favorite character?
      ~Mrs. Donofrio

  15. Hi Mrs. Donofrio,
    I absolutely love this book the first paged hooked me. My favorite sentence in this book is with the verb windmilled, but that wasn’t the only verb in the sentence it had four. I think that this book has some great writing and what makes it great is that amazing verbs (windmilled) and figures or speech. What is your favorite book Mrs. Donofrio?

    • Oh, Donovan! You ask such a difficult question for an English teacher! I will have to give you a few titles, as I really can’t choose just one. In no order, I like To Kill A Mockingbird, A Raisin in the Sun, Gone with the Wind, The Wednesday Wars. Where the Heart Is, and Wish You Well. What is your favorite book?
      I am so glad you like Maniac Magee!

  16. Hi Mrs.Donofrio!
    I like sentences that are funny, strong, use really good figures of speech, and have cool dialect! What makes sentences good are for them to have good vocabulary, nice strong verbs and adjectives. When you write what do you like to have in your sentences?


    • Hi Brooke,
      I think you made an awesome list, and I try to have all those things in my writing. I try to communicate as clearly and as interestingly as I can the message I have to convey. I try to use strong verbs and to vary my sentence structure. So far, I have only written and published articles for magazines and newspapers; I have yet to have any success with fiction (unless you count Teddy), which is a whole different kind of writing. Who is your favorite writer?
      Mrs. Donofrio

  17. Hi Mrs.Donofrio,
    What I think makes good writing is FOCUS
    F- on topic
    O-Oraganized, introduction, body conclusion
    C- Content , examples and detail
    U- Usage grammar punctuation, spellingcapitalization
    Style- Style, vocabulary, figures of speech ,and variety of sentece structure

  18. I love the sentence on page 35 ” You think you come down here and be bad? That what you think?” This is such great dialect. The other sentence that I like is on page 17 ” He’s on his knees now, all hunched and puckered. His eyes goggle at the back door, at the door knob.” Goggle is one of our “AWESOME VERBS.” I think that interesting dialect, big vocabulary, and exciting verbs are some parts that make up good writing. I loved the sentence you put as one of your top ten.What is another one of your favorite sentence so far in Maniac Magee?

    • Hi Heather,
      I agree with your choices, and I think that the second one is especially appropriate for you as it has the word “goggle” in it! Interesting dialect does make books fun to read, Confonnit!
      In Maniac Magee I also like the last sentence on page 31. It is very long, a whole paragraph really. It starts out with all the things Maniac sees as he whizzes through town while being chased by John McNab. After listing nearly everything he passes in quick succession, the pace of the sentence slows way down as Maniac sees “faces, faces…the town whizzing past Maniac, a blur of faces, each face starting from its own window, each frame in its own personal frame, its own house, its own address, someplace to be someplace to be when there was no other place to be, how lucky to be a face staring out from a window…” The frenetic pace of the story slows down here as Maniac physically slows from running to walking. We get our first glimpse into Maniac’s mind and heart. He misses living in a home and being part of a family.
      What do you think will happen to Maniac by the end of the novel?
      ~Mrs. Donofrio

  19. Hi Mrs Donofrio,

    ” In the painting the artist liked wide lines, and heavy sweeps of color, yet the colors were so vivid and swirling and drawing of the eye” I like these sentences from The Notebook. I think that it has very good imagery. Have you been reading any books lately that you liked a lot?


    • Hi Brooke,
      This is a great choice for imagery. I can picture the design in my mind. I wonder what colors the artist used?
      Maniac Magee is the main book I am reading right now, although I did buy The Shack from the book fair, so this is on my list. I read a little of Chicken Soup for the Soul every day, too.
      Have you read any other books by Nicholas Sparks? I read The Notebook” a long time ago.
      ~Mrs. Donofrio

  20. Hi Mrs.Donofrio Sometimes I get very caught up in a book and I don’t pay attention to the chapter numbers. Like when I was reading the Hunger Games for instance, I only planned to read one chapter but ended up reading six. I am reading Maniac Magee as you give us the chapters but I find it hard to stop at a certain chapter when I really want to know what is going to happen next.

    • I agree, Eric. It is hard to stop reading Maniac Magee because it is interesting and because the chapters are so short. I hope you are liking the book.

  21. Hi Mrs. Donofrio,
    I am reading the Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan. I am currently on the second book called The Throne of Fire. My favorite sentences are: I sniffed the air. Six in the evening London time, yet no smell of burning biscuits from the kitchen. Gran should’ve burned at least one tray of biscuits for teatime. It was a tradition.

    Although this sentence doesn’t have a ton of figures of speech it’s still pretty funny. The sentence is saying that Gran has burned so many biscuits it has become the normal routine.

    A good sentence should have fun verbs, figures of speech, intriguing adjectives, and I think something that is pretty funny should be added to the list.
    Have you read the Kane Chronicles?

    • Hi Cogan,

      I haven’t read the Kane Chronicles, but your sentence makes me want to read them! It is a funny sentence because of the irony. We expect a grandmother to have a delicious smelling kitchen, and an oven full of warm, tasty biscuits. Do the Kane Chronicles have to do with mythology?

      ~Mrs. Donofrio

  22. Hey Mrs. Donofrio
    What I like about this is how the author uses strong verbs in a lot of the sentences we have read so far. I also like the fact that he makes up a lot of words. I’m excited to see what the rest of this book has in store as we read.

  23. Hi Mrs. Donofrio,
    I also like chapter 7. I like how Jerry Spinelli makes up his own words and puts them in his books! Like this sentence, “He wound up, fired, the ball headed for the plate, and – what’s this? – a legball? – it’s got legs – long legs pinwheeling toward the plate.” The verbs in this sentence make it more intersting to read and visualize what your reading.
    Do you ever make up words when you write?


    • Hi Mercedes,
      The sentence you chose is certainly a favorite. A few other kids chose it as well. I wonder if Jerry Spinelli thinks, “Now that’s a great sentence,” when he’s done with a sentence like the one you mentioned.
      I haven’t made up any words, but sometimes I hear you kids making up words, and they’re fun. I know last year one of Mitch’s favorite words to use was “ratnuts”. Its a compound word; both halves expressing displeasure. Various members of my family, who shall remain nameless, occasionally try to invent words when we play Scrabble.
      Can you think of any other new expressions kids have come up with?
      ~Mrs. Donofrio

  24. Hello Mrs. Donofrio, my favorite chapter is chapter 12 because this is he chapter that Magee gets an address. My favorite sentence was: Before the puzzled faces of Mr. And Mrs. Beale, he opened the front door and looked at three cast-ironed digits nailed to the door frame:seven two eight. But my favorite book is Hitler’s Secret, I got at the school book fair and finished it in two days. Didi your school have a book fair?


    • Hi Emmalee,
      Unfortunately, book fairs did not exist when I was in school. I am too old for that I guess! I love going to the book fairs now; it is like our own little Books-A-Million. Now all we need is the coffe shop!
      ~Mrs. Donofrio

  25. Hi Ms.Donofrio,

    My favorite types of writing are the ones that use an ample amount of vocabulary, vivid verbs, and the type that explains the story so well it’s like I am really there, waching it happen.The book I am reading now has that. Maniac Magee is really alot of fun and it takes all my strength to stop reading. Does this happen to you too?

    • I love reading Maniac Magee, too, Ellie. The chapters are so short, in addition to be so much fun, that it is easy to read ahead in the novel. If only we could stay in language arts class all day to just discuss books and drink tea, school would be perfect!
      ~Mrs. Donofrio

  26. Hi Mrs.D,
    I was on our class blog and I saw the book that we are reading on here, I would like to answer your question. My favorite sentence in the the book is this “And that’s how Jeffery Magee knocked the world’s first frogball for a four-bagger.” What makes the writing so good you ask? I’m sorry but what doesn’t the writing good, the book is amazing and I love reading it. I have a question for you now, If you had to pick a word any word from the book which one is your favorite out of all the wacky,fun,and surprising words.


    • Hi Alicia,
      My favorite word so far is “unbefroggable”. It’s such a fun word to say; I wish it would catch on so that everyone would start to say it.
      ~Mrs. Donofrio

  27. Hey Mrs. Donofrio my favorite line in the book is “lying on a mattress gave him a wierd feeling of slowly rising on a scoop of mash potatoes”. What makes good wrighting is haveing fantastic verbs and discriptive adjectives.

  28. Hello, Mrs.Donofrio!

    Your description of Maniac Magee makes me want to read it myself. I’m glad you translated that sentence, I never would have understood it otherwise. But that lovely mishmash just piqued my curiosity! I can’t wait to dig into that book.

    I have an interesting paragraph from a book I’m reading called Hamish X and the Cheese Pirates. It’s by Sean Cullen, with an accent on the A. He has written another interesting series called the Prince of Neither Here nor There, witch I have read and recommend. Anyway, here it is:

    The town council erected ropes throughout the streets linking all the buildings so that people could haul themselves along in relative safety. *The wind was so powerful some days that it wasn’t unusual to see people pulling themselves hand over hand to the super market, their bodies parallel to the earth.*

    (I marked a sentence with *stars* so you can enter it in your Top Ten contest. Yay!)

    There’s more, but I won’t spoil it for you guys. I hope one of you tries this Author!

    By the way, what does “unbefroggable” mean, anyway? Does it mean you can’t froggable across the floor? Or is froggable a form of locomotive?


    • Hello Faith!

      Thank you so much for commenting on our blog! I think we should nominate two of your sentences for our Top Ten Award.

      But that lovely mishmash just piqued my curiosity! I can’t wait to dig into that book.

      Piqued- strong verb!
      Mishmash- specific noun, and fun word
      dig into a book- idiom!

      Mishmash is such a fun word that I looked it up in the dictionary. It comes from the Middle Ages. Most likely it derives from people saying “mash, mash”. Synonyms for mishmash are hodgepodge and hotchpotch. Both are fun words themselves!

      I like the sentence you chose as well for its excellent imagery. I imagine people pulling themselves along in what is like a wind tunnel between city buildings, their bodies horizontal to the earth, hair blowing like flags behind them.

      Do you live in a windy area? Have you ever been in extreme wind?

      “Unbefroggable!” means “Unbelievable!” It’s another fun word to say!

      Thank you for visiting our blog. We hope to see you again.

      Thanks for visiting. We hope to visit with you again soon,
      Mrs. Donofrio and kids

      • Hello again!

        In answer to your question, there was a large windstorm last week that knocked out our power for 5 hours. I went down to the beach while it was at its strongest, and it was so windy that loose gravel and sand were being pelted into my cheeks! If I relaxed for too long, I was thrown backwards at a ninety-degree angle! Ack!

        I’m flattered you think a sentence I wasn’t even thinking about could win something. Wowzers!

        I’ll probably have my own blog in a couple weeks, so maybe you guys could come check it out then. It’ll be in Huzzah!, Ms.Smith’s blog.

        Keep up the great posts! They’re very inspirational (especially the latest one) and entertaining. You’ve obviously been at this for a while!


        • Hello Faith!
          You are a great writer! You use such colorful language. Ack! Wowzers! Pelted! Do you ever think about writing professionally? We will be very happy to visit you when you get your own blog.
          I teach grades 6, 7, and 8. Because of that, our 7th and 8th graders already have their own blogs. I am making the 6th graders wait until January. So, as always with Huzzahnians, I am impressed that you will get your own blog so soon. Ms. Smith is an inspirational teacher to her own students and to us, too, 5,487 km away. (We use miles in the United States; I’ll have to figure out how to convert that. A good cross-curricular problem tomorrow!)
          Are you enjoying blogging?
          Thank you for visiting us!
          ~Mrs. Donofrio

          • Hello again, again!(Geez Louise! We’re just having a nice little conversation here, aren’t we?)
            Well, I have been writing short stories, but I normally don’t finish them because I start another. Hee hee, Sheepish laugh!
            I’m not much for math, but it would be cool to hear how far away we are in both systems. Is it over 100 miles? 500?
            I’m enjoying blogging immensely, thank you for asking! Are the grade 7’s liking it?

            (Ps, Ms. Smith said how you thought I was an adult from my writing style. I had no Idea my regular old student writing was so sophisticated!)

          • Hello Faith!
            Yes, we are having a nice little conversation, which is just what blogging should be! I want you to know that I used your blogging comments as examples of what we are striving for in our writing. I printed them up and had my students highlight all your interesting words and make notes of the variety in your sentence structure. We also discussed the examples you gave to explain your ideas and the organization of the piece as a whole. All 49 students unanimously agree that you are a talented, and yes, sophisticated, writer! We would love to read your short stories, or any completed parts of them, someday.
            We are 3,409.7 miles away from Comox. If we drove without stopping, it would take 51 hours to reach you. Have you ever taken a long car ride?
            We had a long weekend and lost our time in the computer lab on Monday, so all my kids haven’t been on the blog this week. Next week we will be sure to visit Huzzah! Logan says you have started your own blogs…congratulations! We are anxious to read your new posts.
            Do you ever entertain the idea of becoming a professional blogger? Can you imagine making your living from blogging? It actually sounds too good to be true in my opinion. Perhaps Ms. Smith and I could start a joint blog to supplement our teaching incomes. We could call it 3,407 Miles. What do you think?

  29. Hi Mrs. Donofrio,
    your right I do hate it when your reading and somones ahead of you and they blurt out the answer, then its not a surprise. Has anyone ever done that to you?


  30. Hi Mrs. Donofrio,
    I think good writing should have words that keep the reader interested. Using strong verbs, adverbs, and adjectives are some ways to make writing more exciting. My favorite part of speech to help make good writing is an onomatopeia. Whats yours?

    • Hi Evan,
      I like onomatopoeias; they are fun! It is a great figure of speech.
      My favorite grammar point is Verbs. They make good writing!
      Of course, I love the Medieval Fair, and that is coming up next month!
      ~Mrs. Donofrio

  31. Hi Mrs. Donofrio
    I like the sentence where it talks about how Amanda feels about the book with the page ripped out. It said of to her it was a broken wing on a bird.
