    Write about how you became a mermaid. There are many possibilities for how this happened. Were you born one? Was a spell cast upon you? Did you fall into a secret moon pool? Use your imagination, and do some research if you wish to be as accurate as possible.

    Write about your home. Be creative, and come up with a believable, magical place. You could come from a secret planet, or you could live in a palace in the ocean.
    • An example would be, "I was born on the Planet Corasoa, the Realm of the Wind."

    Talk about your family with fondness. Explain who your ancestors are and whether you are of royal blood or not. You could claim that your father was a sea god (ex: Poseidon). Make it as interesting as possible, but be careful about exaggerating too much. Don't forget to include siblings and close relatives, such as aunts, uncles, or cousins.

    Talk about your powers. Mermaids have many different abilities. Some can charm humans with their singing, and others have the ability to communicate with animals. Certain types can control nature (ex: the wind, moon, waves, weather, etc.).
    • Limit your powers. Make sure you choose only three or four. If you have too many, it could seem unrealistic.

Method 2
Tricking Your Friends

Below are several methods to tricking your friends into thinking you're a mermaid.

    1
    Be protective of your diary, and make your friends think you keep a lot of secrets in it. Write in front of them every day while making sure they can't see the pages. One day, leave your diary in an obvious place (ex: your desk). While you're gone, your friends will most likely peek in it and see your secrets. After a minute or so, return to grab your diary, and quickly walk away.

    "Accidentally" leave your diary at your friend's house. When he/she discovers it, he/she will most likely read it. The next time you see your friend, worriedly ask if he/she knows where your diary is.

    Pretend you have to rush off somewhere. Entrust your friend with your diary without telling him/her not to read it. While you're gone, he/she will most likely take a peek.

Tips

  • The younger your friends are, the more likely they will fall for your mermaid trick.
  • Stay away from water and freak out when it touches you. Mermaids often turn into their true forms at the touch of water.
  • Often update your diary. Write in front of them while making sure they can't see the pages.
  • Be familiar with mermaid mythology. Randomly tell your friends a mermaid fact once in a while. However, avoid doing this too often, or it might annoy your friends.
  • Make your diary ocean-themed. To further convince your friends that you're a mermaid, make all your belongings have something to do with the ocean (ex: blue wallpaper, beach-themed bed sheets, etc.).
