Creative Writing Exercise because it’s a good way to start the week. BREAKFAST with a twist
Breakfast this morning.
Compare it with other breakfasts you’ve known: childhood breakfasts, breakfasts with lovers, breakfasts with children, breakfasts in greasy spoon cafes, in chic coffee houses, hung over breakfasts, breakfasts that start with a shot of alcohol, sleep raddled breakfasts, breakfast when you wake up and know you could rule the world, breakfasts in hospitals, hostels, hotels, in the homes of friends, breakfasts when you have all the time in the world, breakfasts on the run, breakfasts that are a swill of mouthwash and a smear of toothpaste…
Go through four of the five senses:
Touch (includes texture – anything you can feel)
but leave out the one sense we tend to overwork – sight, how it looks. Can you still make it come alive?
This exercise should have appeared yesterday but for technical reasons far too tedious to mention, it didn’t. Ah, well better a late breakfast than no breakfast…
