Five Random Constraints: 12/15/15 This or That

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) Every paragraph or stanza must begin with a "P" word.
2) Someone must drink almond milk in the story or poem.
3) Something must be the color teal.
4) The following three words must appear in the same paragraph or stanza: Molten, Squash, Cactus.
5) Do not use the words "This" or "That".
