1. Include a line from folk song / nursery rhyme—something familiar that most people would recognize.
2. Include a reference to an inside joke—something only your best friend would understand
3. Include at least one word that was new to you in reading Fathi’s book (she uses a number of esoteric words).
4. Include a metaphor with the following structure: “the (adjective) (noun) of (noun)” [try to come up with something unexpected: “the stucco shadow of wind through trees” or “the glassine silence of torn umbrellas” instead of “the crystal pools of your eyes” or “the intoxicating aroma of coffee.”]
5. Include a moment where the tone shifts dramatically to an exclamation — surprise the reader.
6. Be descriptive, use vivid imagery that includes color and other adjectives.

Here’s the big trick: try not to end-stop any of the lines, but instead to have every thought continue into the next line.
