Object Autobiography

Creative Writing | 9-11 yrs | Learning Pod

Writing has to do a lot with research. Even the best writers spend a great deal of time on getting to know their subjects. There is a saying in the writing world- Write what you know. But for young writers who are developing their craft, they must get to know what subjects they like to write about in order to realise what they know.

Try this exercise where you pick an object like a shoe. Find out how a shoe becomes a shoe i.e. how leather is made and what type of leather is best for shoes. How does it get to a shoe-maker? You get the picture… find out about processes it takes to make the final object and go backwards on the journey it has taken to get where you see it now.
