The Truest Feeling

Ernest Hemingway’s dictum: When you don’t know what to write, write the truest thing you know.

What subject could you write that involves a "truest feeling"? Write it without using the word, true. Make readers realize your truth with the use of metaphor and sensory imagery. Avoid abstract words. Bring color sensations into your writing about truth.


Return to a time as a child when you experienced a truth or situation that involved feeling "true."

Recall a conversation with a friend about a truth.

Write a memory of winning an argument.

How will true speak to you in writing today?
