Title: Different Perspectives 13/03/14
Post by: Sarlounew on October 09, 2014, 01:28:31 pm
Think differently with these tasks. Write and post below  :)

1.   Describe a day in the life of an animal (pick any animal you want).      

2.   Write a short piece, either from the perspective of a very young child or a very old person, or from the opposite gender than you usually write in (try to alter your vocabulary or writing style to reflect these changes).                     

3.   Imagine 20 years have passed, and you are 20 years older than you are now.  Write your current self a letter from the future.  What will you say?  What advice?      

4.   Quickly think up some sort of crime, whether small or big (the more details, the better).  Tell it to the person on your left.  Now with the crime you have been given, write a short piece either from the perspective of the perpetrator or the victim.         

5.   You’ve met an alien who has no understanding of emotion at all.  Pick an emotion and try to describe it to them in terms they might understand.            

6.   A favourite of creative writing courses the world over: write about the life story of an inanimate object.  How long do they live?  How do they feel?  What’s their purpose – or what do they think it is?                        

7.   You are one of the last remaining human survivors after a terrible atrocity.  There is virtually no chance of humanity surviving and all you can do is watch as society crumbles.  How do you feel?  How do others react around you?               

8.   Imagine that you live in an alternate universe where you made different choices in all the important moment of your life.  How did things turn out?         

9.   Imagine that you are an omniscient being who knows how the earth will end.  Keeping in mind its end, explain the history of the earth from its very beginning to its final hours.  Does it all make sense in the end?
