A Novel Grocery List

16th Jul 2011 in Writing

A while ago, Vinyl Poetry asked me to take part in their Grocery List project. At that point I was beginning to make notes for my second novel, Rust and Stardust, and so here is my list:

Grocery List

What’s the grocery list for your current project?

    That’s a wonderful idea. I’m going to make a grocery list for my novella now.

    It’s a great idea.I made a list of sounds I would if I could include in a recording of a reading, but they would have to come up unexpectedly:
    a struck match
    a shovel digging, hitting rock
    a squeaking screen door, opening and closing
    three kinds of footsteps, bare feet, rubber slippers,leather shoe soles.
    a water plant being dragged across a surface of water
    the pop of a water plant pod
    water lapping a river wall
    shell chimes

    Dawn, do send me the grocery list for your novella – I’d love to read it.

    Jill, this is a beautiful list. I wish I’d thought of a list of sounds, such a great idea. I’ve never heard the pop of a water plant pod, but I’d like to hear it.
