This is the last of my posts from the Caerleon writer's Holiday. I hope you found them helpful.
- Write about being on a beach and how you experience it now as an adult in 300 words. Then write about being on a beach from a seven year old's point of view in 300 words.
- Write the following emotions firstly from an adult’s viewpoint and then from the child’s:
o Fright, fear, being scared
o Freedom, release, independence, liberty
o Power, control
o Sadness, unhappy, misery, bereavement
o Loneliness, left-outness
- Write about the following situations first as an adult and then as a child.
o Sibling rivalry
o Leaving home / school / town / comfort-zone
o Family breakdown
o Pet dying or getting lost
o A thunderstorm
o Parents arguing
o Pressure to do what you don’t want to
o Waiting for something / anticipation
o Being with your best friend
If you have any other writing exercises you would like to recommend, I am very happy for you to post them here. Or if you try any of the above and would like to tell me how it went.
Until next time,
