Threads of Meaning Exercise 1 “Words as Currency”
Option 2: Making Word Connections
In this exercise, as your mind identifies the concrete aspect of words, you will be led to the intuitive. Your linear thinking will take you into a more complex web of thought.
Start with a topic that interests you. What "drives" you?
Choose from my list of words.
1. Free Write for 15 minutes on your chosen word. Ramble…
2. What other words are present in the word you have chosen? Make a list in a column.
Column 1 Column 2 Column 3
For example: from EARTH Opposites Word Associations
Now make a list of the opposite of each word you’ve made in a column next to the first.
In the third column of words that come to mind as you read the first column of words again.
If you are having trouble finding words in your word, add a letter of your own choice to make a word.
Collect and “dissect” words you find and add them to Column 1.
3. What discoveries have you made about patterns, themes? Record them in your notes.
