Craft/Writing Prompt-Extreme States of Mind
This is a challenging exercise from What If? by Anne Bernays and Pamela Painter, a text I turned to time and again when teaching creative writing.
Write three short paragraphs, the first "fear," the second "anger," and the last "pleasure" without using these words.
The objective is to create emotional states with precision and freshness.
