Touch Your Reader

Another really interesting evening of writing… We did a guided meditation to stimulate the sense of touch.  people closed their eyes and imagined themselves in a market place, really taking in all the sights, sounds, smells and feel of the things for sale.  Then we imagined going into a room, and having a conversation with someone about something you felt strongly about. 

It was amazing how vivid and varied people’s writing was, all from the same simple writing prompts…  Everyone went away eager to develop their discoveries into new poems and stories.
