This week’s Writing Tip is really challenging and creative. From the mind of Aimee Herman; be a flaneur and explore the
world as a collection of seamless sensations! Be aware, and risk getting lost:
Take yourself out with notebook and ink to a place you have never been. This could be a park or neighborhood you have yet to discover. Blink only when necessary, taking in the senses around you.

Take a long walk and create a map of what you see beside you: napkin with spots of blood, tumbleweed of dark hair, corpses of cigarettes, scratched off lottery tickets…….
See what arrives on your page.
