Week 2 Journal Writing 1: Nouns and Adjectives

After going through Module 1 reading materials about Parts of Speech and more details about nouns, pronoun and adjectives, it is time to complete the first writing activity. It is very simple, but it is a great practice to what we learned in module 1.

In your journal, write down a list of at least five to ten nouns and five to ten adjectives as you observe a scene at home, work, or in your community.

The scene:

  7. Time
  8. Problem
  9. Question
  10. Success

It is an easy exercise, but it helps me to be flexible selecting words that can be found in the same scene. This reminds me with a comparison my Prof. did about the direct way of thinking and the lateral thinking where people can use all directions of their thinking. It is a starting point for fluency and flexibility as main features of creativity.
