Okay, this can be as complicated as you make it. This word soup, entitled ‘Genre Blender’ comes straight from the ‘WordPress archives’:
Briefly the idea is to ‘mash up’ different genres and styles; genres include: historical fiction, magic realism, sci-fi/fantasy, mystery/crime, romance and satire; styles include poem, profile, open letter, instructional, rant, and photograph. (And don’t worry if you are not sure how to write in a particular style or of a particular genre, there are links that provide instruction.)
Now pick one (or more) of each and blend (preferably shaken and stirred).
‘A profile of yourself on your trip to an alien colony in outer-space written as a prose poem.’
‘You write an open letter to your partner giving him/her instructions on the best way to pursue romance after breaking up.’
‘A satirical view of the perfect Christmas set in the year of Jesus Christ’s birth written as a rant.’
Now that’s tasty soup.
