Make Your Sentences More Descriptive

Posted: November 1, 2018 at 4:34 pm   /   by   /   comments (0)

The purpose of writing is to communicate information. This is true for writing of all types, for fiction and nonfiction, for creatilve and technical, for business and legal.
A work of fiction communicates information by telling a story, while an email to an employee communicates information in a much more direct way.
In either case, the author accomplishes the goal of information sharing by using descriptive language to convey detail.

Colorful Verbs add more detail to your writing
Eliminate adverbs
Intentional use of adjectives
Comparative language is incredibly powerful in its ability to describe
The beauty of descriptive writing is that it bridges genres and mediums. Being descriptive can benefit your business communications just as much as it can benefit your next novel.
Remember, however: good writing and good description is about balance. If you are too descriptive, your readers are likely to get bored or overwhelmed. If you aren’t descriptive enough, you risk losing your message entirely.
