I forgot to share this...
The following is my "Write on Wednesday" essay I wrote last week. The prompt: "With the holiday seasons approaching, write a persuasive essay to convince the reader to get you something you really want or need; support your essay with convincing details and examples."
Enjoy~ For this holiday season, I only want one thing: a unicorn. Unicorns do exist, although they are extremely rare. Finding one would be an amazing feat. They are magnificent creatures with amazing abilities. If I had a unicorn, everyone would love me!
Unicorns are extremely rare animals. The original species became extinct after the two unicorns that were supposed to be on Noah's Ark missed it because Noah told them the wrong departure time. The species was then recreated when the horses and narwhals breeded together. However, the breeding process was dangerous and sometimes unsuccessful. Because of this, unicorns are an endangered species. Because they're so rare, finding one would get you a lot of recognition. If you ever want to be in the Guinness Book of World Records, finding me a unicorn for Christmas is the best way!
Unicorns are spectacular creatures. They have the ability to poop rainbows and barf happiness. Owning one would end world hunger, cure cancer, and bring world peace. Also, if unicorns can poop rainbows, that would mean I would have a never-ending supply of Skittles and gold, since there is always a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, not Nyan Cat.
Because unicorns are such amazing creatures, owning one would guarantee my popularity. While other kids would have dogs and cats, I would have a bloody unicorn! And I would ride it to school everyday. Who needs a car when you can ride a rainbow-pooping unicorn? Everyone loves unicorns, and if I had one, it would be logical to conclude that I, in turn, would be loved as well.
All I want for Christmas is a unicorn. They are rare and magnificent creatures, and everyone loves them. Who wouldn't want a unicorn?I got a 5/6 on this essay.
P.S. Don't forget, you can also
