August 11: How to accomplish the impossible.

Today we'll attack the "How to" genre by trying to inform our readers on how to do something that would be considered impossible, whether it is actually impossible, or just perceived that way, or is a play on words (How to defy gravity as a fun vignette about singing along to the Wicked soundtrack perhaps?)

A few examples of impossible things: Counting to infinity, stealing Mount Rushmore (Carmen San Diego can show you how), shooting laser from your eyes, regrowing a severed arm, reverse time, unburning a photograph, holding your breath for an hour. Here are a bunch more.

Because the concept is somewhat absurd, don't worry if you get a little silly. The great thing about notebooking is that you're producing source material, not polished pieces, so don't worry that you might be going in the wrong direction, or putting the 'wrong' thing down. Anything can be the right thing in the right context.
