Notebooking Daily Writing Exercise March 28, 2015

Daily Exercise Genre: Five Random Constraints.

About today's writing prompt genre: 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) Only two sentences may be over seven words long.
2) The sound of thunder must be included.
3) The word "calendar" must appear at least twice.
4) A character must receive something mysterious or disturbing in the mail (or email).
5) Describe an elephant's foot pad without saying what it is.
