Notebooking Daily Writing Exercise July 12, 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.

And then there was the episode we'll file under brushes with mortality.

This could be a nonfiction response, write a vignette or story or even a first-person poem that recalls a near-death or brush with death experience. You can latch onto the specific-wording there, "file" and "episode" can both inform the stylistics of the piece. This could be a cathartic exercise, or you could plumb your imagination of neurotic worries and make the reader fear something new with your visceral descriptions.
