Notebooking Daily Writing Exercise July 21, 2015

Daily Exercise Genre: The How-To.

Today we'll work with the good old 'how-to' genre. Write a 'list poem' (or a regular poem) or a piece of prose that explains various ways or steps in how-to do something.

Today's how-to is...

How to investigate a bump in the night.

Ah yes, that proverbial "what was that?" moment which has wrenched us all from sleep at one point or another. Even if you live in a studio apartment with no pets, at least once you've probably heard a crash in the kitchen which snapped you from your dreams and debated investigating the noise. Maybe you just imagined it, maybe it was part of your dream, maybe it was a robber, a murderer. Do you grab your bedside revolver, a gold club, baseball bat, make a gun out of your index finger and thumb? There are plenty of opportunities for comedy here as well as a chance for an action-packed narrative.
