I haven’t met a single person that despises you. There is something magical about the way your sun shines and warms us up from head to foot. Sometimes, it gets a little hot, especially here in Texas. But for me personally, I will take it!
Today, let’s write about anything summer, past or present. Childhood memories, painful sunburns, flowers blooming, climbing trees, picnics, beach trips, camping, anything summer related. (A little hint...save your vacation writing for next week.)
Incorporate your senses:
Our family did a lot of camping and trips to various lakes when I was a kid. There was a particular “lake scent”--a little fishy, moldy, dirt-infused smell that I can still remember today. (And even taste when I think about the water going up my nose!) But that didn’t affect how much fun we had splashing around in the frigid water and squishing our toes into the cool muddy bottom. If you went under water with your eyes open, sun filtered through a greenish brown blur and the muted engines of motorboats in the distance buzzed through the water.
Now break it down, and identify your sensory experience:
Smell (and taste)- fishy, moldy, dirt infused water
Feel- frigid water and cool mud in toes
See- greenish brown blur under water
Hear-buzz of motorboats under water
Relive, or create, an entire sensory experience in your writing this week! I’d love to hear how it goes for you. The comment box is wide open!
