Truths and Untruths

Full Details

Write a list that inventories ten things you wish were true, or ten things you wish weren’t true, or some combination of both. This list could be humorous or serious, could be written as a poem or prose, could contain one-word items or one-hundred-word items, could be from your own perspective or from that of a character—fictional or real.

And don’t forget to give your list a title!

Ideas to whet your palette:
  • Ten things you wish were true about turning 16.
  • Five things you wish were true about life and five you wish weren’t.
  • Ten things you wish weren’t true about politics.
  • Ten things Harry Potter wishes were true.
