Notebooking Daily Writing Exercise May 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...

Describe a horrible birthday party.

In honor of my brother's birthday, let's create an awful party! (Sorry AJ). Whether you go with a horribly depressing party, maybe no one showed up, only the wrong people, the plans fall through, or maybe carefully planned events happen and they're utterly boring. Maybe it's a sort of birthday party gone wrong: the candles catch someone's hair on fire, the pinata string breaks and gives a partygoer a bloody nose, someone poops in the pool, the dog runs away and then the drunk clown gets hit by a car as he's walking across the street without looking. Whatever angle you like, run with it and make it just cringingly awful.
