Wow! A light bulb just went off in my head when I read this! I will admit I am very guilty of writing boring sentences like the ones you used in your descriptions. I love your “try this” suggestions, you brought everything to life with just a few words. I feel like such a dunce now, because obviously I have been making major boo-boos without even realizing it. I am super excited to be learning all these tips, I’ve shelved my novel for now while I take myself back to writing school and learn to make things better! Are there any sites/books that might offer practice for things like this? I am new to this site so I wasn’t sure what all you have available. Can’t wait to explore! Thanks again for your awesome post and valuable tips!
