Writing Prompt 9/15/10: Breakfast

By Marilyn Friedman

Start your day out with a delicious, nutritious writing class! We’ve added a Friday a.m. section of SYWBW/Finishing School for those of you who have a flexible schedule.

Also, in honor of Fall, we have discounted our prices for September and October. Take advantage of our fantastic classes and retreat at new, affordable rates! Write that book, short story, or screenplay that you’ve always dreamed of finishing. We can help you do it. Call 323-333-2954 before these classes are full.

Writing Prompt: Make a list of your five favorite breakfast foods. Pick one and write about it for 10 minutes. Make sure to include some sensory detail about that breakfast food (smell, taste, sound, touch, sight). Then post your results in the comments of this blog.

Here are some ideas for what to write about: describe what the breakfast food tastes like in great detail, discuss why you think it is the most superior breakfast food, or describe what happened the last time you ate it (a breakup, your morning routine, witnessing something at a cafe or restaurant). Use this poem as inspiration for your writing if you like.

Breakfast (Love Poem) by Ian Beckett

Orange squeezed, tea brewed, bacon fried

Self showered, beard shaved, robe wrapped

Wife kissed, tea brought, eyes rubbed

Juice sipped, toast munched, day discussed

Sugar stirred, tea drunk, watch checked

Kids rattled, cornflakes spooned, plates emptied

Mum fussed, kids grumped, teeth cleaned

Noses wiped, shoes on-ed, lunch packed

Stragglers awayed, byes waved, friends greeted

Office called, PC packed, car started

Wife snuggled, door closed, journey begun.
