Merry Christmas! I spent it in Venice, which was misty, moody, and very magical.
Even moodier after started playing with a neat little App that added filters and textures to the pics I took on my phone.
Which set me to thinking of a writing experiment: Take an old piece of writing. Something unfinished perhaps, or something that felt a bit stilted or stale – something you knew needed putting to one side until later.
Well, now’s later. Take that writing, and add a filter to it. Maybe a whiff of faded parchment, or a sepia tinge, or the ghostliness of a daguerrotype, or some perky orange Kodachrome. Let this filter bring light and colour and feeling to your writing: new life.
