GENERATION LOCKDOWN- WRITING TASK
Share your story on life in lockdown.
What to write about
Professor Joe Moran offers some great advice about taking time to notice what’s around you: https://generationlockdown.co.uk/2020/05/10/inspiration-comes-from-opening-your-eyes/
Sophie Minchell also has tips on finding ideas for your writing:
• What is the same as and what is different from before: daily routines; what you eat; when and where and how you play; what you dream of...?
• What do you like and dislike about lockdown?
• Your inside thoughts and feelings versus your outside actions (what others see of you)
• What experiences are you having that everyone shares and what ones are unique to you and your family? Can you imagine how a different person might think and feel?
• Maybe follow one thing throughout a day in lockdown – your dog, a drinks mug, the sofa, your front door/letterbox...
How to write about it
Before you begin to write, decide what form you will be writing.
The Generation Lockdown suggestions include:
• a recount
• a poem
• a story but you are free to choose and submit writing in other forms too!
