“Knowledge is of no value unless you put it into practice.” –Anton Cheklov
Host, Jody Maberry brings us another segment from the Ultimate Travel Writer’s Workshop in Austin, Texas. You can listen to last week’s here.
This week we’ll hear from Tracey Minkin, Travel Editor for Coastal Living magazine.
Tracey starts by asking questions…
“What makes travel writing really sing? What makes it leap off the page, what makes it memorable?”
It’s about the details. It’s about the descriptions used to bring the words to life. It’s about using your senses.
How do you learn to do that? You practice.
Tracey shares with us 5 daily exercises that have helped her develop her writing skills and they’ll help you too.
She’s given them interesting titles too…
- Do Me In Bed
- Sky Work
- How Big Is It?
- Face Off
- Color Wheel
Tracey explains what these exercises mean and how to do them. She also tells us how practicing these exercises every day will enhance your travel writing.
