I feel like this is sacrilege in the creative space but here’s the truth:
If I didn’t have plane tickets with my entire family’s names on them to go to London and then Southern Italy, I might have decided to stay home.
Our airlines all have different baggage restrictions, and somehow our luggage that USED to qualify as carry-ons somehow are way too big for everything and so now we’re bringing duffle bags instead of suitcases. Mary all of the sudden got a fever out of nowhere yesterday afternoon and so Michael is cuddling her all day today.
And I’m having a moment of clarity that’s slightly disappointing.
So I’ll miss out on the complicated feelings that can only come from seeing world treasure-status items kidnapped, profited-upon, yet very safely kept (like the Rosetta Stone and Pantheon sculptures) that may have otherwise been destroyed. And yet they’re still in Britain…(reply to this email if you have strong opinions about this).
But it’s happening.
And I’m finally starting to get excited.
I’m planning to share little pieces of what it’s going to be like to travel, and to be honest, I’m slightly nervous to share because I’m a little worried I’ll just fall into cliche land! It’s so easy to just say things like, “so beautiful,” or “I love this place!” or “missing it already,” or “when can I come back?”
If you literally draw a blank every time you get to the writing part of posting on Instagram, this video is going to give you all of the tools you need to write more creatively, stop being cliche, and write something that people love reading.
I’ve shared the strategies I learned in my creative writing masters program to stop writing cliches and start writing creative, more valuable captions with hundreds of students who are finding the same as they do it! (This isn’t like anything you’ve heard before).
Leave a comment and let me know what you struggle with most about writing captions and which of these tips was the most helpful for you. I’m right on the other side with a long flight ahead, just waiting to hear from you!
