Today I´ll work through part 3 of The Cube – A Writing Exercise. The question to be answered is:
What item is similar to the item you have chosen?
I have chosen the leaf. Tis there any item similar to the leaf? I wonder… The first thing I think about is a piece of paper. It is as thin as a leaf, and it can also be blown around by the wind. They are both very light. They come from the same source – the trees. You can use both the leaf and the piece of parer to do funny things for the children. The leaf gives you a boat, and the paper gives you an airplane. And you would be able to write or draw something on both of them, if you wish.
Discussion: Are your stories similar to each other? Do you use to tell the same story over and over again, just with other characters in other places, or is it entirely different stories? How could you broaden your set of stories? Is there any of your characters that are similar to you? In what way? Are your characters similar to someone else from your life? Whom and why?
