Descriptive Writing & a Chuseok Moment

Descriptive Writing

Assignment
At some point during the long Chuseok break, choose a moment to describe. If you can take a photo, great. If not, create a strong mental image. Write 200 words describing that moment as powerfully as possible.  Do not describe a series of events (e.g. first this happened, then that happened).  Instead what it felt, looked, sounded, and smelled like to be in that moment and why that moment touched you

Type this in your Google Drive ‘ENG265 Writings’ folder and post it in the class Band by Oct. 10. Bring a printed first draft to class on Wednesday Oct 12 .
