This isn't supposed to be a long, involved book. This is just a way to get the creative juices flowing, so I encourage you to keep the writing to 500 words-ish or under. Feel free to post your writing. Fiction: We all have those drawers in our room that we haven't touched in years. Today you finally open the drawer. What do you find? Be creative. Poetry: How do you feel in today's economy? Do you feel alone? Have you banded together with others? Write a poem about this. Nonfiction: Why is it (or isn't it) important to make a positive difference in people's lives? In this, describe a time you positively/negatively affected someone, or how someone positively/negatively affected you.
