A Stormy Writing Exercise

Image result for free storm pictures


 We've all been through various storms. There are thunderstorms, snowstorms, tornadoes, hurricanes and wind storms. They give us a golden opportunity write with vivid visual images and to use sensory details to the fullest. 

We also have metaphorical storms throughout our lives. Today, as an exercise, write about one of those storms that you 'weathered' through. 
  • Include sensory details.
  • Show your feelings rather than telling what they were.
  • Use active verbs
  • Start with a good hook
An exercise like this can often lead to an essay, story, or poem that is worth submitting for publication. We never know what treasure will be found in the recesses of our minds. 

Use the picture above to trigger your memories of your own personal storm.
