Pretend you are a soldier fighting in a war. You are thousands of miles away from your loved ones and you are unsure of when/if you’ll see them again. Write a letter home to a parent or girlfriend. Describe the environment in which you write the letter and also your feelings about the situation.
Pretend you are a loved one at home waiting to hear from your son, husband, or boyfriend. Write a letter to him describing your situation at home without him.
Choose a form of poetry and write about the sort of things you might see/experience and how you might feel about your situation.
