    MC what words paint a vivid picture in your mind when you read them.

    Look at these two sentences. Fall leaves are bright. The leaves of fall are imitating the sun.

    Meaningful modifiers include adjectives and adjectives such as: boastful, fuzzy, furry, tasty, magnificent, pastoral, faithfully, scornful, fragile, slyly, regally . . .

    These modifiers are boring and don't have much real meaning: good, pretty, fast, nice . . .

    But I'm writing about The Birds in a negative point of view, as i didn't like it at all..so what could i use to say that the plot wasn't believable at all?

    This assignment doesn't ask for your opinion. It asks you to find the meaningful modifiers and figures of speech.

    I think you're procrastinating, MC.
