Writing Experiment #1--Around the Block
Imagine you’re walking down a block in your neighborhood.
· Write a poem in which you describe everything you see along the way, from puddles to pieces of trash, from lost gloves to chipped paint on the curb.
1. Use the five senses
a. texture (how things feel)
2. Break it into lines
3. Do NOT rhyme. J
4. Font = 12
5. Spacing = up to you (EXCEPT MLA, which has to be doublespaced)
Time for first draft = twenty minutes
START: 10:12 END: 10:32
