A LOVELY WAY TO COLLECT MEMORIES IS TO WRITE ABOUT THEM. WHY NOT WRITE ABOUT ONE OF YOUR FAVOURITE PLACES OR DAYS OUT AND CREATE A LOVELY WAY TO REMEMBER IT?
Where did you go?
What did you see? Explore in detail how things looked! Use great imagery and new words – adventure with your writing.
A truly powerful way of writing is to explore the senses. What sights, sounds, smells and feelings did it inspire? What do you love most about this place?
What would you most recommend? Why?
How can you make your ‘writer’s voice’ stand out? Great writing reflects your personality and individual voice; don’t be frightened to put ‘you’ into your words!
Here’s a picture from a day out which I LOVED! Whitby – one of my favourite places – have you tried the fish and chips there? The smell alone can draw me in, nevermind the outstanding views on a crystal-blue day!
Not only do I love Whitby, its fish and chips and the fact that it’s such a focal point for many who like Bram Stoker’s Dracula… I also adore the fact that I can take my sidekick furry companion, Bertie with me. If I were to write about a great day out, Whitby would be on the list…
Extra tips: why not create a scrap-book of souvenirs to go with your writing? It could include bus or train tickets, receipts, leaflets and small keep-sakes you found on your trip.
