Notebooking Daily Writing Exercise March 12, 2015

Daily Exercise Genre: Five Random Constraints.

This is an exercise to make your brain work within a confined space. There will be a few constraints pressed upon your writing, some meant to help drive narrative, some meant to slow the process of the ever-flowing feed of words that stream through the mind. To make you meditate on specific word choice not necessarily at the most important plot places, but irregularly so that even connections can dictate concern and consideration at the word-level.

Today's constraints are...

1) Write in the second person.
2) Aside from not crying about writing in the second person, never use the word "said" in your story aside from in dialogue.
3) Include three sentences that are three words or fewer.
4) Use the word "wind" in at least two different ways.
5) Use the word "Algae" in dialogue.
