Five Exercises To Strengthen Your Descriptive Writing

Understanding Descriptive Writing.

Descriptive writing is pretty self-explanatory. Its main purpose is to describe, whether that be a person, place, event, object, etc. These types of exercises are designed to encourage the writer to focus on the finer details of a ‘thing’, and use their words to describe it in a beautifully, almost poetic diction. Using such in-depth descriptions in your writing can be rewarding for your reader and it allows us, as writers to subtly set the tone via the words we choose.
