but see what happens. Playground: Whether its the swings or the sandbox or the sliding boards, write about your memories of being on a playground. What are people doing? Have your character make a journal entry about a particularly vivid memory she/he has. Write one page on this loved object from your character's point of view, make sure to change it up a little so that the character's view of the object is slightly different from yours.
My name is Grace Jolliffe.
I am a writer and live in Galway Bay on the beautiful Wild Atlantic Way route in Ireland.
I've been working hard to give kids and teachers activities to use to help with creative writing.
If you've been to one of my workshops, you know creativity is fantastic fun!
