Art Project

So, I have been dreaming up this art project for awhile, and finally I think I've decided how it's going to go.  It will be a book, with different chapters of the same sentence over and over again.  Well, the beginning of each sentence will be the same, but each one will be completed by a different person, so the ending will be different.  They can be serious or silly, happy or sad, honest or completely made up!  And they will be handwritten, because I love how everyone has such different writing form.  It is probably one of my favorite things ever, actually. 


Here are the sentences I have so far (if you think of one you think might be good, post it in a comment):
  • The first thing I do each morning is...
  • The last thing I do before I go to sleep is...
  • I keep finding myself thinking about...
  • Today, my joy looks like...
  • Today, my sorrow looks like...
  • My greatest power is my ability to...

I really want to get lots of different people's writing.  If you are interested in participating, please send me an email at wild-dot-tomatoes-at-gmail-dot-com or my other email address, if you know that one.

I'm kind of embarrassed about that first one...

Don't be. I liked it. I'll mail you some from me...if you'd like. :)

I know it's cliche, but! I think "When I grow up, " should be a prompt. I'm old...and still think "when I grow up, I'll...."

Newt said...

Of course I'd like you to!

How about these sentences:

What makes me laugh is....

I mostly dream of...

I don't like....

I want to...

If it rains then...

How do you...

Conditional, on having my brain invaded by Martians then....

Either find a decent home or....

All technological advances have been met therefore....

Suppose we are all happy then...

I have billions in cash, I will...

I was snubbed today, I feel...

I'm reading....

Ok, some of them are silly. Hope they help, though.

That first one is suspiciously similar to my first one, as well as what my "last thing I do before I go to bed" one would look like. And as for additional sentence beginnings, I like, "Home is..."

KB, have you picked which ones to do besides your 1st 6?

Newt said...

I think also "If I had a million dollars" and "Home is"

Thanks for the suggestions, guys!
