1: Short and simple.
Short travel articles can be about surprisingly simple
subjects - such as getting your hair
cut, for example.
Let's say you're visiting
India and you decide your hair needs a trim. You set out
a good local barber or hairdresser. What is it like there?
Does the person cutting your hair
understand what you want? Does he chat to you like the
hairdressers do at home? What
does he talk about? Is it a good haircut or a bad one?
Is it one of the best or worst you've
ever had? How much did it cost? Was it good value? If
your readers were visiting India
(or wherever it was) would it be worth making a special
effort to find this place? Or
should they avoid it at all costs?
This is an interesting and unusual aspect of a country
that most people will never have
experienced or considered. It's also one that most
travel writers wouldn't have thought of
writing about. Even if they had thought of it, it would
probably have made no more than a
couple of sentences in their article, rather than an
entire article in its own right.
Think about the other everyday
experiences you could have there, and write about those
too. How about a quest to find a particular item of
food, or get your car or bike or camera
fixed, and so on?
Excerpt 2: Summer jobs for writers.
Why not take a summer job in a place you're particularly
interested in writing about?
Working as a tour guide there could be the ideal job for
you. It will give you the
opportunity to stay in the area for an extended period
and really get to know the people,
the place, its history, the secret hidden bits, what visitors
are most interested in, the most
common problems they encounter, and so on. You could spend
the winter at home
writing books and articles based on your experiences, and
then take a summer job again
next year - perhaps somewhere else.
If you don't fancy being a tour
guide, or you can't
get that sort of work, there are plenty
of other summer jobs you could do: hotel and bar staff,
lifeguard, cleaner, sports
instructor, working in souvenir shops, and so on. Have
a look around the popular tourist
areas near where you live and see how many foreign people
work there during the
summer. The jobs they do over here are the same sorts
of things that you could do over
