Brainstorming Opposites

Create a┬ámind-map of opposites. Start with a word in the center of your page. Every branch from that word must be oppositely related to the center word. Words branching from those words must be opposites of those, etc. After you have finished an entire page, see if you can write something that deals with two or three of your last few ideas on the page. A story or essay highlighting contrasts would be ideal. If you write poetry (and I usually don’t), you could try working most or all of the words on the page into your poem.
