Good morming Students,
Let's get into the descriptive writing mood.Descriptive writing requires you to really use all your senses and imagination. I would like you to be an artist with words. Describe a place or an object. Close your eyes for a moment . Imagine yourself at the place you want to describe or at one with the object you want to describe . What do you see? What do you hear? What do you smell? How does it taste? How does it feel? What does your sixth sense tell you? Open your eyes and write.
