Think about a favorite place that you’ve traveled to on vacation. Remember what it felt like to be on a break, away from your every day routines. And remember everything that that you loved about it.

What kind of place is it? Did you go to the beach, or the mountains or tour a city? What were your favorite parts of the trip?

In this Write Now! Exercise, use your memories to write a vivid postcard to a friend. Use as much descriptive language as you can and think about what words describing the sights, flavors, sounds, and scents paint the picture.

Remember, you only have a small space to write, so make your descriptions count.
