1. Think of an emotion you’d like to spend some time thinking and writing about. Write this emotion down.
2. Write down (at least) 5 times you felt this particular emotion in your life.
3. For the first line of this exercise, write an image for something you might observe occurring outside (in the streets, in a forest, etc.). It can be any random event, just try and use sensory details in describing it.
4. Next, write one image for EACH of the experiences you made note of above.
