Descriptive Writing

Good writers can create a picture in their readers’ minds.

They can do this by:

  • using interesting vocabulary.
  • elaborating on details.
  • showing, rather than telling, some of the details.
  • describing all five senses (what can be seen, heard, tasted, felt and smelt).
  • using lots of adjectives (describing words).
  • using metaphors or similies to compare two things.
  • using synonyms (words with similar meanings) to make interesting word choices.
