Summer Writing Exercise Series #48: Three Things at the Dam

For today's writing exercise you will write a piece of poetry or prose which contains the following three things. Nice and simple. If you're not intimately familiar with these things do a little reading and see if a piece of info sticks out.

  1. The Hoover Dam
  2. A Tangerine
  3. Licorice Candy
If you don't know much about the Hoover Dam watch this great American Experiences episode about it, it's an amazing feat of engineering.


If you'd like some background music to write to, try a loop of the music from Soarin' Over California by Jerry Goldsmith.
