The following is the final assignment I gave my students. I post this in the hopes that you, dear reader of this blog, will also respond to it by writing your own scene and then post it in the comments. If your own writing has fizzled out, this may be the way to reignite the fire.
Write a scene that features the following:
a red, silk handkerchief
a matchbox car
someone slicing cheese in a kitchen
the number 4
