Descriptive writing can take many forms, a few of which we will try to explore this year. Your most valuable resource in Descriptive writing is your vocabulary, and the following are all useful tools in our efforts to become a better writer and communicator:
- Becoming familiar with the thesaurus; using a dictionary of synonyms and antonyms l can help you to find new ways of saying the things that you want to say.
- Using a dictionary, or subscribing to a word-a-day service can help you to make sense of the words that are all around us.
- Reading a wide variety of texts. The more widely you read, the more new words you will encounter, and the more words you can add to your vocabulary.
