Dynamic descriptions


We all struggle to bring our stories to life, to make the words grip the readers' imagination and suck them into the tale.

Here are great examples of how to do that.

]How to Write Better: The Art of Dynamic Descriptions

So what great sentences did you come up with lately?

Re: Dynamic descriptions


I firmly believe that emotion and senses need to be added to bring life to our descriptions. The author captures that advice pretty well. However, her choice of examples is mostly awful. There are a couple of good ones but she seems overly enamored of this one particular author whose prose I find clumsy.... (and the snippets, which may have held great power for her while reading, do not really inspire or evoke anything when separated from their context).
