I’ve had some preparation time by supplying daily prompts for a writer friend in (non-sick) quarantine so thought I’d share some with you. Include any of the following in your story or poem.
1: A story/poem with the word/bird peacock in it.
2: An object found in a box.
3: Play around with collective nouns for animals. https://englishstudyhere.com/nouns/collective-nouns-for-animals/ Your piece doesn’t have to be about animals. Collective noun could be the title, an expression, piece of dialogue, anything.
4: Take the first line of a favourite poem and riff upon it.
5: Write down the first name of someone you disliked at school. Use the name of your first home or hometown as a surname. Write about your invented character and include a ball in your story. Any interpretation of the word ball.
Good luck! And don’t think of penalties…
