Pingback Trackback of the Canadian Outback

English 20(Chem)
Your task is to complete Writing Activity 1 from my canpoets blog.

Just following those instructions will not be enough, however.

Your assignment will not be complete until a “trackback” or “pingback” appears in the comment section on my Writing Activity 1 post.

I’ll have a bag of cookies on standby. Cookie of choice to STJ blogger(s) who completes a pingback trackback of the Canadian outback.

Translations: Idea to Image

Write as quickly as you can and as much as you can using the following list of 4 words in addition to a few spontaneously selected words.
Rage
Order
Justice
Common
Pollute
Addiction
Challenge
Fantastic
Binder

Then remove the listed words from your writing and leave a set of () behind.

Next to each listed word add an “==>”

Idea==>Image

Shut your eyes, think about a word from the list, let the mind “translate” the idea into an image. Write down an image corresponding to each word.

Reinsert these translated images into your ().

Restructure the piece into poetry. Remove words, add line breaks and spacing.

Do not add rhyme.

Ten Minute Spill

Write a ten-line poem. Find a proverb, adage, familiar phrase, or brainy quote that you have changed in some way as well as five of the following words: cliff, blackberry, needle, cloud, voice, mother, whir, lick.

You have ten minutes.

No rhyming.

P.S.
We will be practising poetry posting permanently. Please create categories in your sidebars to begin sorting it all into manageable hierarchies. (Dashboard=>Manage=> Links=>Link Categories).
