Writing Prompt Idea

Hey Everyone,

I know it’s been a while since I posted a writing prompt – and for those of you in my en3177, this will be the first one for all of you.

This writing prompt comes from my Writing Creative Nonfiction II class I am taking.  My professor – Maureen Gibbon – had us do a two to three page paper using the name of colors as the titles of different sections of the piece.

According to Gibbon, she found this prompt idea online.  I think the cool thing about the prompt is that while you are looking at the names of the colors, the colors almost seem to be poetry – not all of them, but some of them.

The cool thing about this prompt is that you can get the paint samples from pretty much any store like Wal-Mart.  The nice thing about this is that you can look at the pain samples and pick out colors that look interesting to you.
