Valentine's Day is just around the corner and love is in the air. It must be time for Writing Challenge #3
. Here are two questions for you. Choose one and write a paragraph in the comment section.
1) How did you meet your current romantic partner?
2) How did your parents meet?
Now for the "twist". Your paragraph does not have to be true. You can write the true story or a fictional story. Readers can guess whether your paragraph is true or not (use the comment section). When the challenge ends
(wait until the end so that everyone can guess), please come back and tell us if the story was fact or fiction!
Here's my answer to number 1.
My girlfriend and I used to go to a bar every Monday night to watch WWF wrestling. The bartender gave us a free drink once in a while because he thought it was funny that two grown women watched wrestling. When he finished his shift he would always join "the wrestling girls" for a beer. We became good friends and after a few years of hanging out we started dating. I never watch wrestling anymore, but my husband and I have been together for ten years. We thank "The Rock" for getting us together.
--Fact or Fiction?
Take a guess. Then, write your own story.
Here are some phrases you can use in the comment section to say whether or not you believe a writer's story:
"Tara, that can't be true."
"I don't believe that, Josef."
"That sounds like a true story, Lynne."
"I doubt that."
"You're pulling my leg, Lisa."
"twist"= a slight change; added fun or mystery
"The Rock"=a famous wrestler and actor
"hanging out"=spending time together casually
