Objection!–In the Kitchen

Another standard writing exercise is to pick an object and freewrite about it. Instead, pick one of the listed objects, match it with one of the following topics, set a timer for 15 minutes, and freewrite about the combination.

The objects:

  • A glass mug for pessimists
  • An ornate silver serving platter
  • A hand-sewn dish towel
  • A homemade cake decorated with birthday wishes, a single slice removed

The topics:

  • Divorce
  • Crime and punishment
  • Wealth
  • Music

For bonus points, use one of the following formats:

  • A poem
  • A letter to one of your parents
  • A short-short story
