This week is all about descriptive narrative. One of the very first things to learn about writing is “show, don’t tell.” Unfortunately, it’s easy to take shortcuts in description because sometimes it seems there are only so many ways to say how dark the woman’s eyes were. It’s definitely an area in my writing that I’d like to be able to do better, so what better way than to focus my weekly exercise on description. Enjoy!
As a writer, one of the most important decisions you have to make is how to get your work seen by everyone you want to see it. There are basically two ways to do this—publish yourself, or have someone do it for you.
