Creative Catastrophe- C
Convince the Cannibal
Everyone loves a cannibal, right? Okay, maybe, maybe not. But I bet most people do not like becoming a part of the cannibal’s dinner. Am I wrong? So this week’s challenge is to convince a cannibal NOT to eat you. This piece should be written as a letter which you can keep with you in a wallet or purse and pull it out at a moment’s notice if you ever come across a cannibal asking you to join him or her for dinner.
There really isn’t a twist to this one or a trick, you just need to write a letter to a cannibal explaining why you should not be eaten. Go crazy on this, though! Be creative and go further than “I don’t taste good.” Be convincing enough that a starving cannibal will drop his or her fork and knife and watch a movie with you instead.
And the bonus of the week: finish by writing the cannibal’s reply of why he should eat you despite your letter of protest.
As always, have fun with this! Here’s my attempt: http://www.youngwriterssociety.com/blog/Cailey/convince_the_cannibal_b-59348.html
