Descriptive detail, huh?

An effective written description is one that presents a clear picture to your reader – an image. When you use these images, you are creating imagery. Imagery is achieved by using sensory details and figurative language.

Review: What is figurative language?

Sensory details helps you 

picture how something:

      *  looks

      *  sounds

      *  smells

      *  tastes

      *  feels

So you know EXACTLY what the writer is writing about…

Anybody could see how cold it got.  The blue wind had glass edges to it, stiffening muscles and practically cutting through the stitches of our bright orange ski parkas.  While the wind howled like a dog, its pointed fingers stabbed our teeth like icicles, and our voices jiggled every time we talked.

  • It was cold. It was so cold we were freezing. I never thought I would be warm because the wind was blowing very hard. I have never been so cold in my life.
