EXERCISE Example Description Challenge!

Discussion in 'REFINING WRITING' started by Minibit, Jan 9, 2015.

  1. Try out a different descriptive device in this challenge, instead of using adjectives, use objects or actions! for example, instead of saying

    "It was a dump of an apartment in a bad part of town"

    try saying

    "It was a five-locks, ten rat traps apartment"


    instead of saying

    "The lights were low, creating a luxurious, relaxed feeling"


    "It was wine and cheesecake lighting"


    Describe something by referencing things that are related to what you're trying to convey.

    Here's some things for you to try it out on if you don't want to come up with your own thing to describe:
    • "A super futuristic computer with holograms and complex formulas"
    • "A dark and gloomy wood, full of foreboding"
    • "A super muscly guy armed to the teeth"
    • "She had a crazy, dangerous look in her eye"
    • "a relaxing walk in autumn"
    • "It was super crowded and hectic"
    • "The festival had a variety of food and activities from popcorn to goldfish catching, and it was very colourful"
