Notebooking Daily Writing Exercise April 10, 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) The words "Moist" and "Toast" must appear in either the title or the last sentence.
2) A cartoon character (actual, or invented for this piece) must be described.
3) You must include at least three pairs of homonyms somewhere in your piece.
4) Your story must have an at least somewhat unreliable narrator.
5) You must describe one sound in two very different ways, in different paragraphs.
