Describing your feelings - A simpler way to write

My language partners often ask me what they should write about in their moments when I suggest using them as a way to improve writing skills. 

What I usually tell them is, if you can’t think of anything to write about, post about your day, what’s on your mind, or something that creates a strong feeling such as happiness, frustration or sadness. 

Describe what happened and how it made you feel. Try and explain why it made you feel that way. 

This is the kind of writing that will challenge you and help develop your ability to express yourself, especially during conversation.   

For example, when I’m frustrated about something I faced during language learning, I might write a long post just describing that one single feeling. If I have some insight or experience that made me very happy, I might immediately start writing about it. 

Learning to put feelings into words is the essence of writing, so find a feeling and write about it. 

That’s all there really is to this.
