Journaling: Technique #5

Technique #5: Captured Moments
We've all had the camera ready to capture those special moments in our lives. We document our histories, we mark the occasion, we enjoy reliving those moments and some of us go as far as to scrapbook those photos for prosperity.

You can also do this with the written word. Captured Moments are written photographs, focusing on a feeling we remember, the scene, the memory. These are often short vignettes, only a paragraph or two, describing your captured moment. An emotional experience or a meaningful memory, something you felt during that moment in time captured and recorded with the written word. These are a lot of fun to write. They bring those fond memories flooding back and enjoyed a second time around.
