This summer-themed printable is a sensory writing activity.
Students will use their five senses to write a paragraph about a day at the beach.
Some AWA workshops call this a "weekly writing practice," which I like.
Writing, like all things creative, takes practice and dedication.
I think I am mesmerised by the fleeting nature of all things in this world and although time moves quickly, it’s significant and beautiful nonetheless.
When I find the time, I’m also working on my first novel. I won’t tell you anything other than it’s entitled ‘The Archipelago of Skye’ and it’s a YA portal fantasy and I wish I had far more time to devote to it than I do.
I also adore reading plays which compelled me to impulsively choose a playwriting module at Uni (with no previous experience) which I absolutely adored and wrote my first (slightly strange) play. I’m not sure what fascinates me so much about it, but it’s this idea of introducing a philosophy and evoking an emotional journey in as few a possible words.
I love the fleeting sensation of these emotions that have bubbled to the surface and subsequently floated away like steam.
I love to read too, although I don’t believe I read quite as much as I should.
The genres that captivate me are surrealist fantasy & adventure although I have been known to enjoy a good dystopia, science fiction and a few literary novels.
