Notebooking Daily Writing Exercise February 26, 2015

Daily Exercise Genre: Random Generation.

Random Generation exercises allow computers to help you find your prompt, you know, instead of visiting this website via messenger pigeon and cranking out the pages with your mechanical typewriter. Write a piece or fragment that utilizes the following random element.

Today's random generation is...

The book in the story. For this exercise a father and son are together and the father is doing something he doesn't want the son to pay attention to (whether it's dark, serious, or even just a surprise for his mother or something) so he asks him about various aspects of the book that the kid is reading. Find the title of that book in Cornelius Zappencacker's Pulp Sci-Fi Title-O-Tron, and decide the wacky or interesting aspects of the story that you want the son to tell the father about. If it can be ironic or informative of the task the father is doing then all the better.
