Daily, genre-inspired writing prompts for authors, teachers, and journaling

Journaling + Fiction – June 2

“The prudent man is always sincere, and feels horror at the very thought of exposing himself to the disgrace which attends upon the detection of falsehood. But though always sincere, he is not always frank and open; and though he never tells any thing but the truth, he does not always think himself bound, when not properly called upon, to tell the whole truth.”
Adam Smith

Journal prompt: Spend at least 20 minutes writing about what you accomplished last time you did not tell the whole truth.

Fiction writing prompt: Write a scene in which your protagonist tricks an ally into taking action by telling a selective version of the truth.
