Writing Prompt ~ Future Perfect

Writing Prompt: The idea of talking about the past in the future may sound complicated, but the construction is quite simple. Think of it like this. You use the future perfect tense to talk about an action in the future before another action in the future. Unlike the present perfect tense, your viewpoint is in the future when using the future perfect tense. Review the structure of the future perfect tense in English. Then write a diary entry about something that is going to take place tomorrow. Use the future perfect tense.


By this time tomorrow, I will have been married for three hours. My mother will not have left yet. She will have checked her baggage at the airport, though. More than likely she will have called my father to tell him that everything went well. Will my dad have called to say congratulations? I doubt it. My friends will all have gathered around me to say that it’s good that my mom came even if she didn’t stay for the party. I will have cried tears of joy and sadness. Marcus will have told me to stop feeling sorry for myself and to start concentrating on our guests. They’ll have toasted us and told us how happy they are for us. We’ll have had our first dance. By the time my wedding night is over, my mother will have arrived back in France.
