Notebooking Daily Writing Exercise August 6, 2014

August 6: Revisiting NPR's Wedding Cake in the Road.


Way back before these here internet days, the Spring of 1989, NPR's Weekend Edition Sunday began commissioning writers to respond to a writing prompt.

That prompt? The image of a wedding cake in the middle of the road. The stories were read on the show, and later anthologized (there are multiple copies at this link where you can buy the book for $0.01 plus standard shipping. I highly recommend it).

I especially liked Richard Bausch's Tandolfo the Great (you'll have to right click and rotate that pdf counterclockwise to avoid a neck cramp, but it's there at least).

So give it a shot. The image is that of a wedding cake in the middle of the road. How you get there is the adventure.
