Five Random Constraints: 12/19/15 Papa Conifer

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) The word "Conifer" must appear in the title of your piece.
2) You must write the piece in sections (not just paragraphs or stanzas) of fewer than fifty words.
3) You may only use three words that end with the letter "Y".
4) The smell or taste of peppermint must be described or somehow come into the piece.
5) The name "Papa" must appear at least three times.
