Will Awdry, copywriter, says:

Writing is the ability to express yourself even when you are not in the room. In other words, leave the words in front of somebody and they get the message with a tone and all of that. Writing is a bit of yourself that you can leave behind and everybody gets.

So, for this task, we are going act as if we are leaving a message about where we are for the next person to find.

In 100 words or less, explain your environment on your blog.

It can be, quite literally the room you are in, or it can be something else, but it will help if you are familiar with it. To get your juices, think about the following questions:

What senses are evoked when you look around? How is it decorated? Is it clean or cluttered? Does the environment belong to you or are you a guest? Is there a distinct smell? Is that smell evoke a feeling of familiarity or foreignness? What can you feel around you? Is there anything unique about the textures? How are any of the attributes the room an analogy for your current feelings? Does the environment you are currently in explain anything about you feel?

Once you’ve completed your blog post, add the tags “Assignment Bank” and “Assignment55”.

    Someone is shushing the crowd of people. You sit and wait in anticipation, and look at everyone dressed in their Sunday’s Best clothing.

  • My place in the world: September 1, 2016- 3:59 PM (Vanessa Zielinski)

      As I sit here looking around my surroundings, I can’t help but gaze outside and see the large bright mural that contrasts perfectly against the grey clouds that house the humidity awaiting me outside.

    I look around in pure awe. Same feeling, same realization each time I’m here. It’s hectic all around me but some how I’m at ease. Theres buildings, sirens, people, signs, stores, music, lights all around me. I hear the banging of quarters in a cup as a man sits, begging for spare change. Noise all around me. There’s diversity here. Not […]
