Notebooking Daily Writing Exercise July 2, 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...

Tell the story of "All that glitters isn't gold" from the perspective of a pyrite-lover.

For this one, write a story where what might be an unfortunate turn of events due to something impersonating something else generally thought to be more prestigious/better (gold/pyrite, diamonds/cubic zirconium, or much more familiar, a ginger who dyes their hair blonde gets stuck with a new boyfriend on a desert island and he actually likes gingers—sci-fi works, right? Just kidding Gingers, no prejudice here. Or perhaps an earthquake causes massive destruction, but also creates a beautiful view for a small subsection of the populace. Maybe a monkey's paw-like story turns a man into a fish, but as luck would have it he had recurring dreams of being a dolphin and is happy with the change.)
