Hiya Freshman Writers! Hope this finds you well and writing. This post is one of five that I’ll be sharing here about using your senses to help you write. Read on for this week’s prompt and come back here for more in the coming weeks.
My day job finds me working with people everyday. I listen to what they say (or don’t say) and watch their body language. I have to figure out how people feel, whether they reveal it with words or action. After lots of training at school and experience in the field, it’s very natural for me. Eyeballing people can be a great way to get yourself writing.
What does this have to do with you Freshman Writers? Here’s a prompt for you. Find a comfortable place to sit where it’s busy with people. Describe what you see and only that. Use active words to describe actions, colors, textures, etc. See what you come up with and feel free to share it here.
