Last week we set our writing theme “dream”. Why we choose this topic? Think about it, “what’s your dream?”, “what do you want to be in the future” are often asked questions in our childhood. It ‘s like we are pushed to find out the real selves. And another meaning of dream is like a fantasy becoming true only at night. Being able to have dream is really a blessing. The connections between dreams and reality are excellent source of inspiration for literature.
From your writing, to elaborate an abstract noun like “dream”, you should tell us which meaning of the word you want to explain in the first place.
Remember to pay attention to your grammar. When you talk about your dream that you are able to achieve in the future, you should use present tense or future tense. (eg: I want to be a doctor in the future./ I hope I will gain lots of money.) But if you are talking about a dream you will never be able to make it come true( such as change something already happened in the past), you’re supposed to use subjunctive mood. (eg: I have a dream that I could go back to my childhood.)

There is a short poem about “dream” to share with you:

Dreams

Langston Hughes

 

Hold fast to dreams

For if dreams die

Life is a broken-winged bird

That cannot fly.

Hold fast to dreams

For when dreams go

Life is a barren field

Frozen with snow.
