Writing Experiment – Writing Instructions
Create a set of original instructions that, when carried out, produce a piece of writing or language-based art.
These instructions can be in the vein of CA Conrad, but they certainly don’t have to be. You might want to think about the way one’s body could be activated in your instructions, and how that may affect the resulting work (though you aren’t required to). You might choose to write instructions that are extravagant, outlandish and daring or perhaps complex, boring and tedious. Either way, try to craft the instructions in a way that will produce an unexpected piece of writing.
