I'm So Happy for You! - Writing Prompt
Help another person celebrate a special occasion. Write a story about someone you know, or a fictional character, who just did something great. Perhaps she won a prize in the science fair. Maybe he earned a spot on the football team. Did your sister or brother finally get an "A" in math after struggling to understand all the Xs and Ys or word problems?
Think about how to make this story interesting. Add some conflict. Are you really happy or is there a bit of envy keeping you from showing your true feelings? How do you handle the mix of emotions? Does your friend know you feel that way?
How can show what's going on in someones head? Make it funny or dramatic but have a good time and, if you feel like, share your story here for others to enjoy.
