Use your creativity to tell a story. Try to use more than one form (expression) of creativity when telling that story.
You don’t have to be a prose writer to tell a story. (Don’t box yourself in by thinking that way.)
Be as non-traditional as possible.
Okay. Insert an argument. Let this argument start out with some tie in to what you have written previously or something deeply rooted to your character or theme. Then let the argument go left.
You know… when an argument takes on a life of it’s own and is no longer about what it started out to be about.
Yes. Do that.
Take it there.
The more absurd the better.
This makes for beautiful poetry and prose. It takes the reader on a journey that they are captivated with even though they clearly realize they are going in circles.
Have some fun today!
Write a poem, essay, or short story starting with this line:
The kitchen smelled of fried fish, lavender, and heartache.
🙂 Happy Writing!
