Notebooking Daily Writing Exercise May 20, 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 discuss (at least briefly) the truth about one myth regarding Sweden.
2) You must include at least one long /O/ sound from this list in each sentence except one.
3) At least three sentences/lines must begin with the phrase "This was"
4) You must include one sentence that includes at least five commas.
5) The word "List" must appear within either in the first or the last four words of your piece.
