Exercise No. 3 [narrative]

Assignment: write a narrative that uses all nine of your selected words.

In completing this assignment i used a cutup technique to create an experimental narrative. i printed out a short narrative story as well as a brief description of each of the nine words and cut each line out with scissors. I then drew pieces of text randomly from a pile and pasted them on a page to create a narrative. Lastly, I typed the material into the computer, smoothing out the rough edges as i went.

Use the links below to view the original cutup or the final typed narrative.
