In cleaning my room, I found a couple Post-Its stuck to my desk.  They had writing prompts on them.  So I'm posting them here.

From "A Brief Lecture on Door Closers" by Clemens Starck
1.  "How does it work?"
2.  Write about a process or a history.
3.  Acknowledge a metaphor.  As a metaphor.
4.  How do people interact with mechanisms?

From "Why I Take Good Care of My Macintosh" by Gary Snyder
1.  Write the answers to a "why" question.  Multiple answers.
2.  Use repetition and the line variation that Snyder uses in his poem.

From "What's in My Journal" by William Stafford
1.  What's in your journal?
2.  How do these line breaks work?  See what you can do to replicate them.
3.  What's the pacing of the list?  Is it good or not?
4.  Mix in concrete imagery with the abstract.
