Hey guys! So a good way for us to improve our writing of visuals such as people, places, and things is by looking up images.Even looking outside for a model (such as a mansion in the center of a big city). The possibilities are endless.
So I thought we could have a little fun with image writing and descriptions. What we will do is find an image on Google and insert it into the thread and then write about that image. The person who will post another picture will critique the person’s writing from the previous post. The point is not to “rate the writing” but to give constructive criticism on how to improve their visual writing. Don’t be afraid to offer suggestions as well. This is all about improving writing! Don’t be afraid to add dialogue if you have an image of two or more people!
Keep it to one paragraph, two tops
Here’s my image:
The forgotten garden was my mother’s favorite place to play as a child. She loved the smell of the fresh wild violets as they began their brief life in springtime. She said it was a place of pure beauty and I wish I could see it, but the only phone booth in the area is drowning in the overgrowth. I can only think of the snakes as they slither uphill into the woods, or the way the bees buzz around my ears, bringing back the memories of how bees stung me the last time my mother brought me here. I suppose I am one of those people that doesn’t see the beauty in unbridled nature. But she also said I have unbelieving eyes, whatever that meant to her.
