Writing Topic Tuesday -- Exploring the World

Sorry I missed Topic Tuesday last week. I wanted to finish the book: How to Be an Explorer of the World by Keri Smith that these exercises are based upon first.  Check out the review of the book here:

Here are the topics for Tuesday, May 10th:
  • Pay attention to and write about light... "patterns, reflections,  and projections."  Look at objects and how they reflect light. "List the different qualities such as reflective, translucent, refracting, mottled, etc." (pp 32-33)
  • "Record everything you consume or everything you purchase in one day/week."  (p 59)
  • "People Watching: Sit in a public location and document people you see for one hour. Take detailed notes. Make sketches of one item that stands out most about each person." (p 73)
  • Invisible City: Using your imagination, create a portrait of your city or town in which everything that you encounter is magical, exaggerated, or slightly altered from reality." (p 99)
  • Fifty Things: Write down (or document) fifty things about one of the following: A trip to the library... the grocery store, or a walk in your neighborhood." (p 53)
