Writing Ideas

Imagine a character makes a wish every week. Each of his/her wishes come true, but they are not what they expected. Write about what could go wrong with his/her wishes.

Write about your own wish coming true. How would you feel if your wish came true? What would you do? Where would you go? Who would you meet?

The wishing well has become too popular. Everybody’s wishes are coming true. Can you write a letter to the ‘wish-maker’ explaining how this is creating problems for the town?
