The last of the foundational exercises, this two-parter takes what you’ve learned from the week and puts it together to write a full verse.

Part I: Dig into the details. Even the smallest details tell a story about who you are. Practice showing the detail of a setting in the way a novelist would describe a scene. Similar to the Figurative Exercise on day 02, but focus your words a bit more on storytelling.

Part II: Use that detailed writing along with a rhyme scheme to transfer imagery into a brand new verse. Painting a vivid picture of a setting can give the listener a specific sense of place and can make for some really beautifully honest lines.
