Postcards from the past:
A message that a unknown person sends. The example is a WWII solider that sends a letter and nobody discovers it until now. First of all, there has to be some emotion to it because anyone who wrote letters gave a lot of thought and put some type of emotion into it.
Step 1: Think of a emotional topic that you think a WWII solider (whatever your theme for an old postcard is) would say in a letter to the person they loved, a loved one, or telling someone about what is going on during war.
Step 2: Write the letter and use a lot of descriptive words in it, such as, my darling you are like a tulip that brightens up my day just thinking about your sweet scent. Use lots of details because it allows the audience to visualize a feeling (which is hard) or understand what you are trying to say.
Step 3: Find a background that looks good and would help tell your story of this unknown solider that is pouring his heart out. Visual aids help out any story and can help give life to the character you are trying to be. To help visualize the story, use a font that is not normal. Use something that you do not see every day. That will draw your audience in and make them want to read your writing.
Step 4: Put it all together into a combination of words, colors, fonts, and make your story come to life. The unknown solider is one of many things that are possible with this assignment. Every element will help your audience visualize the story that you want to tell.
