Training the eye by Julia Bell

A good writer must have an eye for details, it’s not just any detail that a writer looks for, it’s the telling detail like the moment when the woman in the chip shop, ordering double egg and chips, dropped her purse and her Weight Watchers membership card fell out.

Describe your world to yourself as you move around it. What best describes your living room? your street? Your town? Who lives here? Write lists of words and phrases and try to be as precise as possible in your observations.

There was no exercise in this one, I just after reading this entry I started to pay attention to all things happening around me and writing them in my notebook.
