Notebooking Daily Writing Exercise April 6, 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) You must use the word "Ball" somewhere in your title.
2) Your first paragraph must have an odd number of sentences, your second must be even, third odd and so forth.
3) The piece must be written in first person.
4) A broken (or non-operational) phone must come into play somehow.
5) A secondary color (orange, purple or green) must appear in the first and final paragraph.
