Writing Prompt: Make a list of 3 of the weirdest experiences or people that have crossed your path. Pick one and add a sensory detail to it (smell, taste, sound, touch). Then write a story, poem, or scene about that item, including the sensory detail. Write for 10 minutes, then post your write in the comments of this blog!
For example, I’m going to write about my 7th grade history teacher, who used to store his gum behind his ear for later. What weirdness surrounds you?
