I'm terrible at describing things. My prof wants me to give a visual/sensory description of this Child care center I wrote a profile story on... What's some advice on writing descriptive?

  • writing -

    One of the best ways to think about writing descriptions is to pick a direction!

    ~ start at the left and work your way around to the right
    ~ start at the right and work your way around to the left
    ~ start at the top and work your way to the bottom
    ~ start at the bottom and work your way to the top

    For describing a room, I'd choose one of the first two. For a scene (landscape), I'd choose one of the last two.
