Weekend Assignment: Sensory Overload

Welcome to the weekend writing assignment!

This week, my youngest child (a.k.a. The Boy) decided to take an unplanned, and unannounced, vacation. I learned about this trip when, during a phone call, I asked, “Where are you?” and he responded, “The beach.”

He sent me this photo along with the text message: “Wish you were here.”

Let’s just say he wasn’t the only one! In my mind, I could hear the sound of the surf, feel the sand between my toes and the breeze on my face. Ah… the sensations I imagined…

Which brings me to this weekend’s assignment. In the past, we’ve done people-watching exercises, but never a place-watching one. This weekend let’s write a description of all the sensory data we can experience in a single place. Choose an interesting locale, sit back and soak up everything you can see, hear, smell, feel, and taste. Then write a detail-packed description of the place that captures something from each of your five senses.

If you’d like more writing prompts, be sure to follow me on twitter (@thatbarbperson). I tweet a new prompt every morning… well almost every morning.
