Notebooking Daily Writing Exercise May 15, 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 under 360 words (in keeping with the length restrictions of Flash).
2) At least one door must slam or shut.
3) The word "Pineapple" should appear either in the title or the first sentence/line.
4) Someone must say a single word in dialogue (there may be more dialogue, but one time only a single word must be uttered).
5) A time that is not noon or midnight must be mentioned twice.
