2021 Writing Exercise Series #144: 'Wedding' Multi-Prompt 4

The 2021 Writing Series is a series of daily writing exercises for both prose writers and poets to keep their creative mind stretched and ready to go—fresh for your other writing endeavors. The writing prompts take the impetus—that initial crystal of creation—out of your hands (for the most part) and changes your writing creation into creative problem solving. Instead of being preoccupied with the question "What do I write" you are instead pondering "How do I make this work?" And in the process you are producing new writing.

This is not a standard writing session. This is pure production—to keep your brain thinking about using language to solve simple or complex problems. The worst thing you can do is sit there inactive. It's like taking a 5 minute breather in the middle of a spin class—the point is to push, to produce something, however imperfect. If you don't overthink it, you will be able to complete all of the exercises in under 30 minutes.

'Wedding' Multi-Prompt 4
For today's writing exercise you actually have 4 choices! In the spirit of a wedding needing "Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue." The first offered prompt is one from Notebooking Daily's past, the second is a brand new prompt for the day of one prompt theme or another, the third prompt is a 'borrowed' prompt from one of Sparked's 'Prompting Partners', and the fourth prompt is a wildcard riffing on the idea of 'Something Blue'. Take a look and dive in! First thought, best thought for these prompts.

Something Old: Five Random Constraints: 12/13/15 "Lefty" (Published on Notebooking Daily on 12/13/15 this prompt is to write a piece that includes or is constrained by 5 limitations—for instance, #1 is "Five different words beginning with the letter K must be used.")

Something New: Three things (include these things in a piece): A Calendar, A Pothole, and Polka Dots

Something Borrowed: 3Elements Review ISSUE NO. 18 SPRING 2018 (use the following three things in your piece: Fuse, Accordion, Scrape). Reminder, this piece can be sent to Sparked Lit Mag! It doesn't have to have been written when the issue was currently reading.

Something Blue: Write a piece that centers around someone flying through the bright blue sky (not in an airplane, shuttle, balloon or dirigible).
