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.
