WRITE: Think of a favorite movie, actress/actor, character, or historical figure. Bonus points if they’re someone who’s been forgotten or misunderstood by society or someone you can relate to. Write a piece about them. What if a character is, say, obsessed with Marilyn Monroe? Or what did you learn from this movie/person?


WRITE: a story in reverse/of the family video tape or memory being rewound again and again/what you would skip through, what you would pause on, and the scene you would replay, again and again and again.
