Five Random Constraints: 12/14/15 Marc Ecko

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. The purpose of this is to make you meditate on specific word choices and sentence structure and elements not necessarily the most important plot points or character traits which should allow the piece to unfold in a way that it would not have otherwise.

Five Random Constraints:

1) An instrument must be named and either played or its play described.
2) Your second paragraph or stanza must be a single sentence of at least fifteen words.
3) You must somehow include Marc Ecko by name.
4) The last word of your piece must be "hay".
5) You must use one word or short phrase that is a palindrome. (My advice is pick your palindrome before you start, but hey, it's your world)
