According to Wikipedia, today is the meteorological beginning of summer which is great because summer is my favorite time of year–I’m sure I’m not alone in that sentiment. I like summer because it’s the best time to have adventures and I love adventures–it’s why Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is one of my favorite movies. I tend to have a lot of great adventures in the summer and this often makes for good writing. No matter what you are planning to do this summer, you should plan to write about it. Whether you go to the beach or take a road trip you should feel an urgency to write about the feelings and experiences you have. Some people like to take picture but I don’t think this is enough.
Your writing can let you get inside the head of a former you, and while this sounds like a strange metaphysical claim, I think writing about experiences let’s you re-live them in a more fulfilling way than just looking at old photographs.
