Writing Prompt: 5 Senses


I don't know about you, but I'm still full from Thanksgiving dinner and all of the leftover pies... and I love it.

For today's writing prompt, think about what you've been eating and describe it according to the five senses. This close attention to detail will help you to describe the food for the reader in such a way that she can taste it, too. Write non-stop for five to ten minutes and then go back and underline the key lines/ideas/images that emerge. Yes, of course you can warm up a piece of pie to help start the writing process.

I'd love to read your piece or responses to the exercise below in the Comments section.
