So, in my English 12 class we have a student teacher finishing her practicum, and right now we are doing a unit on creative writing.

She assigned an activity that I thought would be a really good writing prompt.

She had a container of words that could be used to describe the tone of a story, and she had each student pull a word and use it in a story about taking the dog for a walk in the park.

So, I thought I would pass the activity onto you guys, and let you have fun with it. :)

WORDS:

crazy
boring
disconnected
funny
angry
serious
solemn
playful
annoyed
loving
indifferent
calm
cheerful
eccentric
hopeful
humorous
innocent
mischievous
sad
tense
tragic
urgent

Have fun!

When I finish mine, I'll post it. :)

Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.
