Pick two vowel sounds. Make a list of words that use each sound. Write two verses of a poem—use one vowel sound in one verse and the other in the second. Try to use it in as many words as you can. What mood does each sound create for your poem? Do you want your end words for each line to rhyme or not?
Set the timer for 7 minutes.
Don’t think about it too much; just do it.
