1. Reread the sections titled "Approach and Perspective" and "Extranatural Ideas" and generate five ideas for poems, at least one based on each of the methods of Kevin Bezner, Martha Whitmore Hickman, David Citino and Karen Joy Fowler. Don't feel compelled to agree with the perspectives. Simply conceive your own and note the various approaches. Afterward, return to the poet whose methods have intrigued you most and generate another five ideas for extranatural poems.

2. After you have generated your ideas, return to your journal and describe your beliefs about religion, the supernatural, the extraterrestrial, the fantastic or any other aspect that qualifies as extranatural according to the definition at the beginning of this chapter.
