Coffee-break exercise: Look up


12 May 2023
Write about something you’ve spotted when you take a different view of the world in this week's exercise

Mostly people see the world from their eye-level, or below. For this writing exercise, go somewhere familiar and look up.

What can you see that you might not have noticed from ground level?

Make notes about it – what you have spotted and how it feels, as a writer, to view things from a different perspective?

Then write on the theme of ‘looking up’ in any style or form for 15 minutes.
