Writing Exercise from the Archives BREAKFAST

Your subject — what you ate 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:

Taste
Smell
Touch (includes texture – anything you can feel)
Sound

but leave out the one sense we tend to overwork – sight, how it looks.

Can you still make a reader lick their lips ?

      Yes, go ahead (and if you happened to mention Back to Creative Writing School in the process I wouldn’t be the least bit upset!)
