We did this in language arts (another, I know!) I'm going to describe a really junky car to you, and you have to try to sell it to me, using positive connotation. If you have little brothers or something you can also just borrow one of them. I have to find my example...I'll post it then. It's really fun! Try using some oxymorons too to make yourself laugh...
Let this be your mindstate....
"My car is a piece of crap but I want you to buy it anyway."
Color: Orange, Lime Green, Pink...Paint is faded and chipping off in some places, exposing rust.
Missing: 2 wheels, the remaining ones squeak
Basically it's a falling apart eyesore of a car [ie. crap]. I want to sell it to you anyway.
Graffiti is the most passionate form of literature there is.

A new and improved 1964 Ford. This fabulously, never owned car is a large van able to fit the whole family. Perfect for a man who works as a clown, lime green, pink and orange paint splash the car in addition to a background color similar to rust. All you need is a clown nose for the front and you'll have it all! For just one hundred grand, you can have all of this in addition to two wheels. That's right, folks, you get two wheels with this FABBBBULOUS offer!
Surround yourself with people who are serious about being writers, and who will tell you, ‘Hey—you can do better than this.’ Who will be critical of your work, but also supportive. And who will not be competitive in a negative way.
