Play with Your Words Writing Prompt #31: Persuade Me

English is a living language that evolves through use. However, some phrases commonly used in speech have not yet made their way to acceptance in written form. Here’s two: “alot” and “suppose to.”

When writing the correct form for each is:

  • a lot
  • supposed to

Using these two terms correctly, write 1-3 paragraphs arguing for the way you think something should be done.

Remember when writing persuasively you don’t want to weaken your argument with squishy statements like: “I think,” “maybe,” or “I believe.” Be bold! State your thoughts.

And don’t forget to use the terms “supposed to” and “a lot.”

When done, share your writing with your writing partners or here on the blog. I’d love to see the interesting things you are willing to advocate for!
