What an ideal environment for a workshop about your senses given by Karen Ince, it was also one of the best workshops I have ever been to and this is because it was different. The morning flew by with covering three senses, sounds, smells and feeling textures.
It really got your mind working on different words and how to describe things as I think maybe we all get a bit lazy in our writing and just opt for the common words that come to you straight away. By the time we got to the third sense we were including others in our piece of writing about each sense.
I’m not sure what Karen was pointing at but we were very good so it wasn’t a telling off point. lol.
I am always fascinated by the picture on the wall behind Karen and I keep meaning to write a story about it as it always appears to me that it is wanting a story. There was a full house for this workshop which was put on by The H.G. Wells society for their writing competition that they hold every year. It gets many hundreds of entries from all over the world as it has been going for so long.
The next group meeting for Write By The Sea will be having a little senses exercise which I am really looking forward to.
Beautiful views to come out to on Saturday afternoon with not a breath of wind, ideal day for sitting in the sun participating in a cocktail or two with the family.
