Some dictionaries define a 'white lie' as an unimportant lie that is told when the speaker tries to be tactful and polite. But you never know the consequences of not telling the truth! Therefore, it is difficult to draw the line between important and unimportant lies. A white lie is definitely something untrue, but the speaker says it in order to avoid hurting someone's feelings for the time being. It is not told for an evil purpose. But keep your fingers crossed that the audience never finds out the truth. The topic for the Creative Writing Workshop this week is 'The biggest lie'. Write in less than 500 words. Remember to include your personal details, such as name, contact number and address. Mark on your envelope 'Creative Writing Workshop: Week of October 20' and send your work to Young Post, 16th Floor, Somerset House, Taikoo Place, 979 King's Road, Quarry Bay, Hong Kong. The deadline is November 3. The best entry(ies) will be published.
