It’s week four for our graduating capstone.
From July 13 through 19, this post includes writing stimuli and optional writing prompts. It’s designed for writers to complete within minutes. There are photographs and video. Choose a stimulus and play the video, or engage a photo for one minute (click on photo to enlarge). The intent is to engage your creative mind.
Each stimulus is followed by four incomplete sentence beginnings and endings. You writing does not have to pertain to your chosen stimulus but some prompts do include a possible connection. Write for at least one minute but no more than five. Either free write to your liking, or embrace constraint by using the beginning and ending prompts. In constraint, combine any beginning with any ending. These can be a single sentence or multiple paragraphs. Feel free to massage and combine prompts to the liking of your radical self!
My neighbors are speaking in Korean, and Cantonese, and Hindi, and English and motorcycle, and honking cabs, as Lexington Avenue sidewalks sigh under the pining humidity. And then there was the salt shaker.
