Notebooking Daily Writing Exercise March 3, 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 a highly stylized story where the bad guys are not one-dimensional evil-doers.
2) Include a scene alongside a stream where there are at least three descriptions of the stream.
3) There is a teapot. It isn't exactly a MacGuffin, but it has an odd significance.
4) One character whistles at an extremely appropriate time.
5) End your piece on the word "scraped."
