Great descriptions invite us to use our visualization skills. Authors use clever, striking words and phrases to enable readers to picture characters, settings, objects, and actions in their heads. Without great descriptions, we would struggle to see the "movie in our minds" as we read. Everything would be blurry instead of crystal clear.
This Week's Prompt:
- Quote the text accurately.
- Explain how the description(s) helped you visualize by focusing on the specific word choice of the author.
- Explain why it is important for a reader to be able to visualize this description in relation to the plot or purpose of the story.
I look forward to hearing about all of the visualizing you are doing in your reading!
