Today I found myself reading a lot of slices looking for inspiration. Lauren Lynfield’s “Three Truths and a Lie” caught my attention. This is an ice-breaker game that can tell you things that a person wouldn’t bring up in casual conversation. Here are my Three Truths and a Lie. Can you guess which is the lie?
1. I run ultra marathons which are 50 milers.
2. I took Russian in college because I wanted to work for the NSA.
3. I cooked for workers in the orchards of a large Kibbutz in Israel.
4. I am color blind and so are my two sons.
This is a writing exercise that I can imagine doing with students. I now have now generated three new personal narrative ideas.
