Why not try one of these on for size… on your mark, get set, go!



by Kari Hawkey

Write a poem about the last meal you ate.

Who were you with?  Did you meet a friend?  Were you alone?  Did the food give you indigestion?  What did you wish you ate instead?  Did you have a drink?  Was your meal sad and microwaved?  Was it fast food?  Or, was it ethnic, healthy, organic, Vegan, etc.?  Did you go to a chain restaurant?  Was the waiter/waitress rude?  Describe more than just the food.



by Cynthia Romanowski

Make a list of names for every person you have ever dated/tried to date/slept with and write a two-line description of who they are, what they look like, and where it all went wrong. Example: Bobby Barker, high school wrestling team captain with cauliflower ears and constant gym shorts smell wafting off him, I’m pretty sure he was into dudes. (Extra points if you don’t feel depressed after this exercise.)


You must stay drunk on writing

so reality cannot destroy you.
