Idea: Taking A Walk

January 15, 2012

Idea Jar, Observation

Not every blog post or journal entry has to be deep.  Sometimes it’s just fun to show pictures and tell a short story.

My post here did that.  It just happened, something I felt like doing.  My writing was simple.

Others though have told deeper stories with their walks.

The Simple Life of a Countryman’s Wife had a fantastic post about walking, that evolved into a remembrance of the past.

The Smitten Image did “Think of a Tree“, which showed pictures of her walk set to various quotes.  It too was very powerful.

The next time you wonder what to write about, share your day.  Tell us what you see.  It’s far more interesting than you realize.

Check out this later post for a checklist of things to consider including when writing about your walk.
