Writing Exercise


promises  Promises, both implied and spoken, real and imagined, are all around us. Describe a promise that you (or a character in your story) made. Did you make it to someone else or was it a promise you made to yourself? Did you keep the promise? If yes, how did you keep it? If no, why didn’t you keep it? Has there ever been a promise you WISH you had made but didn’t? Has anyone ever broken a promise to you? Can society or governments or even god make promises? Have you ever been part of an implied/ unspoken promise between you and another person? If you need a lead line simply begin with “You promised me that…” or “I promised you that….” or “They promised us that…..”
