At Blissdom, in my Writers Workshop with Hallmark writers Sarah & Molly, & Casey from Moosh In Indy, attendees were given a writing assignment. I'd love if you'd like to play along, too. Tomorrow Casey & I will host a link up to share your post if you'd like.
Molly gave the assignment: "couches":
"In her amazing book, What It Is! writer/artist shares (among other flashes of genius!) a simple exercise she learned from her college professor and mentor Marilyn Frasca. It's one I use all the time to get my mind in gear.
Here's how it goes: With pen and paper, make a list of ten couches you've known in your lifetime. (This also works with other words, but couches are my favorite because they are central to many moments in your memory.)
When you've made your list, take a deep relaxing breath and find the couch that has the most powerful emotional charge for you. Then begin writing about it in the present tense. Describe the scene.
What's behind you? In front of you? To your left? To your right? Above you? Below you?
Who is there? What are they saying? How does the scene unfold?
Keep writing for three minutes until you've reached the end of the vignette. Keep the pen moving. Three minutes will seem like a long time. But don't stop. If you run out of words, doodle a little till they come again.
Don't edit! Keep the memory and emotion there in all its raw glory!"
Sound fun? Get your post ready for the link-up tomorrow!
