July 20: Narrative day!

Today we'll work with short narrative pieces based on one of the following prompts:

1) Walking to your car you notice something peculiar on the ground which is vastly more important than you first realize

2) Picking up recycling at a local park (good Samaritan that you are--or you're serving court-ordered community service) you find a human _______. Fill in the blank and go from there.

3) The lives of a 7-11 clerk, a third grader, and a bus driver all intersect, at least twice with all three in the same room/area.

4) An unemployed man becomes attached to ducks he feeds in the park. The color brown is important to this story, for some reason.

5) Write the tale of an accidental assassination.

6) If none of these scenarios strikes your fancy, look back through your wordbanks and pick out an additional word that you hadn't used, then write five sentences using it, including one with the word as the first word of the sentence, and two with it as the last word.
