Presenting Dramatically Mundane

I’d like to present to you a writing exercise I will be doing regularly to hone my narrative abilities.  I’m calling it “Dramatically Mundane.”  What I’ll be doing is taking a regular, everyday action or activity and describe it in more detail than is necessary.  Sitting down will become exciting.  Washing hands will become sensual.  Crossing the street will become amusing.  I aim to make boring activities entertaining and interesting.  I’ll be starting it this week, most likely.

I haven’t forgotten about the other writing activity I’ve planned.  I’m interested in getting that going, too.  So, please stay tuned!
