Daily Exercise Genre: The How-To.

Today we'll work with the good old 'how-to' genre. Write a 'list poem' (or a regular poem) or a piece of prose that explains various ways or steps in how-to do something.

Today's how-to is...

How to unbreak ___________.

As opposed to "how to fix ______" this piece will look at undoing something unfortunate. Whether you look at the large scale from the start (with something like How to unbreak a life) or it starts with the small broken thing that potentially escalates (How to unbreak a plate). Or maybe it has more to do with redemption than with the desire to turn back time. However you choose to approach the unbreaking, spend some time thinking about consequence and reaction before doing any actual writing.
