Art students are encouraged to bring a sketchbook with them everywhere. Then, whenever the urge strikes, they can draw a face, or a building, or a flower, or a sunset, or whatever. It's a way to practice their craft, without the pressure of having to turn everything they start into a polished work of art.

Think of this unit as your sketchbook for writing. It's a place for you to write vignettes (short descriptions of people, places, or incidents) without necessarily having to turn them into complete stories, with a beginning, middle, and end.
