Check out this video on writing descriptions.

 

Hello everyone,

It’s been a roller coaster of a week. The Good stuff? Possible internship opening and fun weekend trip with my boyfriend coming up. The not so good stuff? My dad had a bit of a health scare (he’s fine now) and there’s a leaky pipe (which is not fine) and another closed door job wise.
All these happenings, and writers block, have led to an unproductive week of writing. My attempt at NaNoWriMo is slightly derailing, unfortunately, but I’m still gonna try and keep writing, whether I reach my goal or not.

In a previous post, I mentioned my difficulty writing about the appearance of characters and the setting. Just thought I’d share this video about writing descriptions I found. It’s really helpful, at least, I thought so. Made me think about writing descriptions and my choice of adjectives and how I paint the picture.

Just watching it made the phrases “ghost quiet” and “stewed cherry” get stuck in my brain. And really did change my thinking when it comes to writing descriptions.

Hope you find this video helpful too. I want to know what you guys are working on, so let me know in the comments.

Write with heart,
Lady Jabberwocky
