Friday Freewrite

Imagine what it would be like if a snow angel you made came to life. What would he or she look like? Would you be best friends or worst enemies? Where would she live? What would he eat? What adventures would you have together?

Friday Freewrite: Candy Room

Friday, January 29th, 2016

Friday Freewrite

We talked about the film, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, in our Wednesday Movie post. Here are the rooms in the factory that we’re most familiar with because they’re explored in the book or movie adaptations:

The Chocolate Room
The Inventing Room
The Nut Room
The Television Room
Fizzy Lifting Drinks Room
Lickable Wallpaper for Nurseries Room

But there are many fantastical candy rooms that are mentioned in the novel but aren’t explored. Here are just a few:

Coconut-Ice Skating Rinks
Cows that give Chocolate Milk
Dessert Island
Eatable Marshmallow Pillows
Elastic Forest
Glumptious Globgobblers
Hot Ice Creams for Cold Days
Lickity Split Peas
Mighty Jam Monitor
Old Sneezes and Smells Department
Rock-Candy Mine
Root Bear Goggles
Scarlet Scorchdroppers
Square Candies that Look Round
Stars in their Pies
Strawberry-Juice Water Pistols
Toffee-Apple Trees
Whizdoodles

Pick an unexplored room and describe it (and you can do this freewrite even if you aren’t familiar with the story). Be sure to use all five senses. What do different parts of the room taste like? Does the room feel sticky, soft, smooth, or something else entirely? Who is working there, and what song might they sing?

Think of a time when you learned something new using your feet. Maybe it was learning ice skating or playing hopscotch or standing on tiptoe. Now write from the perspective of your feet and let them give their take on the process!

Friday Freewrite: Combination

Friday, January 8th, 2016

Friday Freewrite

Today’s freewrite has three parts:

1) Write about a happy experience (with a clear beginning, middle, and end).
2) Write about an unhappy experience (also, with a clear beginning, middle, and end).
3) Combine the two. Share the opening of one then the other. Then the next sentence or so of one then the other until you’ve interwoven both pieces from beginning to end.

You choose if you want to start/end with the happy or unhappy story.
