Write a piece in which you rotate between a paragraph describing the big things going on right now in the world and then shift to the micro view: a paragraph describing what’s happening in your daily life. Then go back and write another sentence or paragraph about the larger world, and then come back and write a sentence or paragraph about your daily life. Go back and forth at least five times, or more. It’s okay to experiment by varying the lengths of the segments, but keep going back and forth. Don’t get stuck in one point of view.
