Notebooking Daily Writing Exercise March 7, 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) The story must take place where snow covers the ground.
2) Someone must eat cereal.
3) A main character will spend at least half of the story with part of their face disguised.
4) Every instance of the word "and" will be replaced by an ampersand (&).
5) Never use the word 'red' but at the same time, describe at least three things that are of a red hue.
