Address Writing Edit
In the following exercise, I'm going to ask you a series of questions and make several suggestions of ideas for writing. Often, in response to these guidelines, people write in lines rather than sentences and paragraphs, a poem rather than a narrative. As we go through this process, in response to each set of directions or questions, you might want to write only a phrase or a single word on a line.
- If your writing is moving along and you don't need the questions I'm asking, try to ignore my voice and stay on your own path. The prompts are meant to help you when you need a new idea, but you don't have to answer them.
I will read the following guidelines for composing (Perl):
- For your title, write an address — somewhere you have lived in the past, where you have worked, gone to school, visited, or vacationed. Please DO NOT choose where you live or work now.
- You may know this address very well, or only slightly — perhaps you've been there only once. Remember that an address might be a room number (like this one we're in now) or the name of a city (Athens, Greece). Write the address as specifically and completely as you can. (For example: 729 Memorial Avenue, Grove City , PA)
- An address is probably coming to mind right now, whether you can explain the reason or not. Don't worry. You won't have to defend your choice. Just take a chance — write the address at the top of your sheet. If you feel uncertain about the choice, remember that you can repeat the exercise at a later time with another address. For now just choose an address as a heading for the work; choose it for the sake of the exercise.
- "Look" at the place in your mind. What do you see there? Go closer towards it. Do you have to turn to go inside? Which way do you turn, right or left? Keep moving towards it. What do you see now?
- Is there a color to this scene? Are there many colors?
- What do you hear? Do you hear music?
- Who's there? Is anyone there? Does someone speak? What is said?
- Is there food? Can you smell it? Is someone cooking?
- Does anyone else come in? Is there talk? Record the talk as well as you can.
- Write for a few more minutes on anything you've already thought of, or a new image.
Why create Home Pages? Edit
We are working on an home pages, and learning how publish our work on this wiki. We are also learning how to us an online word processor, Writely.com.
Adding an image of our name to our user page Edit
On our home pages we have replaced the text of our name with images from Flick. To do this we went to Spell With Flickr.. Once we had an image that we liked, we saved it as a jpeg image using SnagIt. Then we uploaded it to the wiki, and inserted it into our user pages.
