Creative Writing Session #3b

Welcome –
Ask around the group: What do you know for sure?
"What I know for sure is that every sunrise is like a new page, a  chance to right ourselves and receive each day in all its glory.
Each day is a wonder."        --Oprah

Book Talk –  any good books you've read recently?

Did you do any great reading? Did you write about it? More or less? Learn any lessons?

Beginning Product Name: Creativity Task: On Teachers Pay Teachers

Now set a timer for 2 minutes and start doodling. The goal is to use as many of the circles as you can. For example, you may turn one of the circles into an apple by drawing a stem, or you may turn two adjacent circles into a bicycle by drawing the frame. See if you can use all 20 circles in 2 minutes. It's not as easy as you think! Try to create entirely different pictures every time you try this exercise. If circles get too easy, use triangles or squares.
