WN #49: Laugh: class-provided prompt
Quickly think of what makes you laugh. Jot a few ideas down.
Now, we will quickly go around the room, sharing one thing which makes us laugh. I’ll be writing them on the board.
Look at the list of words and try to write a short piece which incorporates ALL of the words (or at least five).
Write for ten minutes.
Today, you’re going to try your hand at writing a cinquain. Can you guess how many lines it is?

Most common rhyme schemes: ababb, abaab or abccb.
Pretty straightforward, and you can play around with the rhyme scheme. Take, for example, Edgar Allen Poe’s cinquain, “To Helen:”

Like those Nicean barks of yore,
That gently, o’er a perfumed sea,
The weary, way-worn wanderer bore
To his own native shore.
Here’s one I wrote.
As always, have fun writing!
