Heads, Tails, Center: Writing Prompt June 10th

Hello friends!

It’s been a long time since I have created and shared a Writing Prompt (besides Monday’s Muse) but there is no time like the  present than to rectify that!

Title: Heads, Tails, Center


Rules: (You will need a piece of paper, a penny and a pen for this exercise…and a clock.)

  1. Using the picture above, create three columns on your piece of paper, one titled Heads, Center and Tails.
  2. In the Heads column, writing down 10 things you LIKE about the image.
  3. In the Tails column, write down 10 things you DON’T LIKE
  4. In the Center column write down 5 things to improve the picture and 5 things to make it worse.
  5. Now comes the penny: Do a coin toss. If the penny lands on Heads, start writing your prompt with the first item/thought in the Heads column. If Tails, the same rule applies
  6. After 3 to 5 minutes flip the coin again to add in another item from one of your columns NOTE: IF YOU HAVE A REPEAT OF YOUR FIRST COIN TOSS AS IN A HEADS AGAIN, THEN YOU ARE NOW TO USE SOMETHING FROM YOUR CENTER COLUMN
  7. Repeat this sequence for 15 to 30 minutes until you write THE END (You can also create a poem should you choose to do so.)

TIME: 15 to 30 minutes

If you choose to participate, please add a link to your post to this original posting, and feel free to share with others!

I will post my results a week from now on Wednesday June 17th.
