Your choice! ☺
Find two quotes about writing that speak to you as an author.
Write the first quote (and who said it) down in your notebook and explain why you find them inspiring and how you can incorporate them into your creative process.
Then do the same for the second quote.
Remember that the noun and verb combinations are meant to be figurative, NOT literal. They should make sense as an example of “literary language” (not as a realistic sentence). Let’s say that one of my nouns is “music box” and all of my verbs are for professional basketball player, which include “play” and “defend”.
Making this match: “The music box played a song” makes sense in a LITERAL way; it is not an example of figurative language.
This sentence: “The tiny notes coming from the music box defended the ancient melody from extinction” uses the verb in a way that creates a figurative image using connotative language.
Your assignment is to write down your partner’s list of nouns and verbs and construct FIVE good sentences or phrases that make sense IN A FIGURATIVE WAY.
