Notebooking Daily Writing Exercise June 18, 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...


During a snowstorm you are stuck in a small apartment with two other people, only one of which you know. Someone pulls out a bottle of alcohol and more truths are shared than you ever expected.


Of course this doesn't have to be the whole story, flashbacks are a great tool for bottle episode. Also consider some out of the ordinary confessions or 'truths' to come to light while trapped together in the small space. It's always nice when the narrator themselves comes to a realization by the end of the story. Be sure there's at least one or two moments of levity.
