Here’s an interesting exercise from last Saturday’s VoiceCATCH.
1. Pick up a coin at random.
2. Read the year. If it’s a year within your lifetime that you can remember, keep it. If not, select another coin.
3. Make a list of 15 things you remember from that year. Include moments from your personal life, and also events in media, politics, pop culture, etc.
4. Which item from your list captivates you the most? Use it to begin a piece of writing.
