Everyone has a day in his or her life that was extra special or dreams about what he or she would do on a special day.
One day, as you pass, you notice that the door is open. Write a story about what was on the other side of that door. Tell a story about what happened when you traveled on a wagon pulled by horses. Tell a story about a day in which everything went wrong. Imagine you could travel to the future and live there.
Imagine you could go to any place you wanted for as long as you wanted any time you wanted.
Write a story about a visit to a really neat place. Now, write a story about a young person (or yourself) living in George Washington’s day. Novels are fun to read because the action keeps you interested, and the characters almost become your friends. Imagine that you were a new character in this book .
Think about what your life would be like, how it would be different living more than 200 years ago. Imagine you woke up one morning and found that you had switched places with a dog or a cat.
What if you had a personal genie who would grant your every wish?
Write a story about a day you might have spent lost in a foreign country without knowing the language. Imagine a city project to have every school student do some hours of community service as a part of the required curriculum.
Sometimes family members or friends embarrass you when other people are around.
Tell a story about children who live in a world where there is no such thing as television, computers, or electronic games.
As you put this ring on, you discover that it has strange powers.
