Notebooking Daily Writing Exercise May 6, 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...

An incident of road rage somehow leads you to making a new best friend.

Whether the new best friend is the person raging against you, you're raging against, a bystander, a passenger, or even someone who steps in and helps out, there are plenty of opportunities here. Don't be afraid to get creative on the cause of the rage, it doesn't have to be as simple as one person cutting off the other, maybe it's a fight over a parking spot, maybe it doesn't actually involve a vehicle and it's pedestrian road rage, or a fight on the bus about the bus driver's choices. Try to involve some ridiculous rage-induced dialogue.
