"Raymond’s eye for telling detail is very fine, as one expects of an accomplished writer, but to this she adds the informing eye of a natural historian of place.”
— John Keeble, author of Nocturnal America

Weekly Writing: Perception

The writers and travelers who joined me for my recent workshop enjoyed this writing prompt, so I thought I’d share the fun. It’s a two-part exercise, the second of which is usually the most fun — and the most surprising.

1. Think of someone you saw while traveling. Write a description of this person.

2. Next, write a description of yourself from this person’s POV.
