Today I want to take the Corner Philosophy and run in another direction with it.
Description. Let's look at the four corners.
When you write, exactly how do you describe your scene? Terse? Flowery? Barren? Detailed?
Let me show you some examples...
Terse: Beth stomped down the street revealing to everyone she was mad.
Flowery: Beth, with the wind blowing her long russet tresses in all directions, stomped the stilettoes with a sharp clicking sound on the concrete walk, revealing to every stranger passing by she more than angry, she was venemous.
Barren: Beth moved down the street; she was mad.
Detailed: Beth, a young wisp of a lady, barely twenty-one, brushed back the long, windswept, russet tresses of hair with a quick snap of her hand, never once losing a clicking stride in her glossy, black stilettoes on the gray cement walk, screaming to every passing stranger her ranting feverous, venom laced outbursts of anger.
Which corner do you see yourself lurking in? How would you describe your 'descriptive' writing method?
Please share your thoughts.
