I've been workng a lot from this imaginative writing text book that I had from college and one of the lessons it's talking about describes using your five senses - sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch - within your writing.
One of the activities it talked about was this -
Use your five senses to describe a thrilling or anguishing moment from childhood. Use personification, metaphor or simile within your writing.
(Used from the textbook Imaginative Writing by Janet Burroway; pg 26).
I wrote mine about the jungle gym I used to play on when I was in Kindergarden. What did you write about?
