Everyday Life Genre (Middle Years)

Writing about everyday life


We're going to do impressions of some different writing styles all around the topic of ‘everyday life’ in fiction, including being self-conscious, ranting about the world, observing people, and celebrating friendship. To give us something to write about, we'll use this picture as inspiration.

What do we mean by ‘everyday life’ in fiction?

We'll do five exercises. For each exercise, you'll get a snippet in a particular style of writing, and then an example showing how you could apply that style to the image.  

Once you submit, you’ll be able to read and react to responses from others in your group. 

If you're ready, let's write!
