Notebooking Daily Writing Exercise April 21, 2015

Daily Exercise Genre: Narrative thread.

About today's writing prompt genre: Take the following story aspect and work it into a piece, whether poetry or prose, whether you explore what led up to this place in the story, it begins with the thread, or the thread is merely a tiny aspect of the story that has crystallized around the original image. However you choose to write it, use the following as a jumping off point.

Today's thread is...

The soda machine at work (or in an apartment complex/dorm) one day no longer has your favorite drink. Instead it is mysteriously replaced with a handwritten placard that reads only "Luck" and is priced at $20.


Whether this ends up being merely a scam, a monkeypaw scenario, a joke, or genuine luck dispensed somehow, is up to you. You decide if the luck is real, or perhaps no one ever even tries the option in your story or poem. However you choose to write it.
