Notebooking Daily Writing Exercise July 19, 2015

Daily Exercise Genre: Five Random Constraints.

About today's writing prompt genre: This is an exercise to make your brain work within a confined space. There will be a few constraints pressed upon your writing, some meant to help drive narrative, some meant to slow the process of the ever-flowing feed of words that stream through the mind. To make you meditate on specific word choice not necessarily at the most important plot places, but irregularly so that even connections can dictate concern and consideration at the word-level.


Today's constraints are...

1) You must use three emdashes (to get an emdash— hold alt and on the numberpad type 0151).
2) You must describe a sunset and not use the words "beautiful" "melting" "red" "orange" "gorgeous" "setting" "dipping" or "horizon".
3) You must use the word "screwdriver" in the last sentence.
4) You must include four different smells.
5) You must include two sentences that are exactly 12 words long.
