The best time to capture experiences for writing is in the moment…or as close to real-time as you can get.
Primary goal? Capture the essential bits, a feel for the emotion at play, the visceral side of the events at hand…
What were the emotions of the moment?
How did your body feel?
Anything in particular about the physical aspects of your surroundings?
I work to capture some of these…mostly it’s about feel and emotions…and that’s what I’m writing, to document, and share…
Because those are the things I struggle with the most, those are the things that shape my day-to-day, and that’s what I want to put out to the world.
I hope you don’t mind. In fact, I hope it helps. : – )
