Descriptive writing enables the author to paint scenes and
characters in the mind’s eye of the reader. Like an artist, carefully selected, colorful words can
convey vivid imagery, but only if the author learns to “show” and not “tell” the audience. Learning how to use illustrative adjectives, action verbs, graphic adverbs, expressive
metaphors, vivid similes and showy personification is the key to writing engaging stories. What’s more is it makes the process of writing a lot more fun!
Concrete learners or students that struggle with
visualization or language processing can find descriptive writing difficult to
learn. They can also find the learning process boring and tedious. As a result, I created a
game to help make descriptive writing both enjoyable and memorable.
through the process. You will be
amazed at the beautiful paragraphs that players of all ages will create.
