Notebooking Daily Writing Exercise April 27, 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 piece must be one block of text (no stanza or paragraph breaks).
2) You must include at least one long /E/ sound in each sentence.
3) At least two sentences/lines must begin with the word "Before".
4) You must include the names of two different cities.
5) Your title must be at least six words long.
