For those of you who may be having problems with your writing, here’s a quick exercise to help out:
Pick up the book closest to you and turn to page 74.
Go to the second paragraph and pick out the first interesting word you see.
Do this now! (Before you keep reading.)
Now that you’ve made your decision, take your word of choice and make it the first word of a poem.
So, lets say your word is “auxiliary,” you might begin the exercise by writing something like, “Auxiliary efforts are fruitless. Crash the plane, close the cell-walls of your birthright, your veins.”
