Writing prompt – describe the contents of your travel bag as if you were a stranger trying to figure out who it belonged to. Reflect on what is says about you, the kind of traveler you are, where you are going, what you plan to do. What would that stranger learn about you? What misconceptions might he have after rifling through your stuff?
Imagine what might have been in the travel bag of Jack Kerouac, Earnest Hemingway, Pearl S. Buck, or Margaret Atwood.
What would your favorite author pack?
