Have you ever heard of SHOW, DON'T TELL?
When you write, you must SHOW the reader what you mean, not merely mention it.
Here's a quick way to improve your SHOW OFF skills.
Make a chart.
In the left column, put the words below. On the right, come up with more descriptive words (or even phrases) that can be used instead. I've started the first one for you, but add at least five more to it.
Make it a contest! Go up against a classmate and see who can be the best SHOW OFF. In other words, who can come up with the most replacements for the word on the left.
NICE sweet, loving, better than average, forgiving, perfect, friendly, outgoing
