Wednesday Writing Prompt

Black Out

Ever left revision with a page (or pages) almost completely blacked out?  See John Barth’s manuscript page …

Since we know how painful it is to see our work end up like a Tetris game at 2:30am after hours of revision, lets take a page of a newspaper or magazine, versus our manuscript.  Take this page and use a marker to ‘black out’ chunks of sentences.  You will end up with a found poem.  Let this fun language guide you into a poem or short story, either it can be your opening or closing line or a character description.  Enjoy!
