Paint Masterful Descriptions on the Page!

Writing strong descriptions is an art form, one that you need to carefully develop and practice. The words you choose to describe your characters, scenes, settings, and ideas–in fiction, poetry, and nonfiction–need to precisely illustrate the vision you want to convey. Word Painting Revised Edition shows you how to color your canvas with descriptions that captivate readers. Inside, you’ll learn how to:

  • Develop your powers of observation to uncover rich, evocative descriptions.
  • Discover and craft original and imaginative metaphors and similes.
  • Effectively and accurately describe characters and settings.
  • Weave description seamlessly through your stories, essays, and poems.

You’ll also find dozens of descriptive passages from master authors and poets–as well as more than one hundred exercises–to illuminate the process. Whether you are writing a novel or a poem, a memoir or an essay, Word Painting Revised Edition will guide you in the creation of your own literary masterpiece.
