Due: 3rd June 2015
As we discussed today, the key difference between Narrative Writing and Descriptive Writing, is that the first, is more of an A to B sort of plot (Beginning, Middle, End – or as we saw with non-linear narratives, sometimes Middle-Beginning-End!) whereas Descriptive Writing is like a Magnifying Glass-like approach, using imagery and strong sensory writing, to situate your reader right in the scene, so to speak.
For tomorrow, write 1-2 paragraphs (decent-sized!) of an opening to a haunted house descriptive piece. It could be from 1st or 3rd perspective and should look to include the following in your description:
- Try to use a simile or a metaphor.
- Use a descriptive word (adjectives) you haven’t used before.
- Try to set the mood and atmosphere by imagining what you can hear, feel and smell.
