Descriptive Sentences To Help With Your Writing2.jpg

On an ongoing basis, I maintain a How-To-Describe word document. It’s a list that contains descriptions for emotions, scenarios, and people that I use from time to time in my writing when my brain turns to mush. Lists like these serve the purpose of getting an idea started when my brain turns to mush, which happens when I’ve been writing for eight straight hours.

Below find some lines from my How-To-Describe file that may help your drained brain along.

I will add to the list and post new categories for your reference from time to time.
