I think I've mentioned this, but we live in a little town called Chagrin Falls. I call it "Mayberry North."
I'm ranting and raving about description this week.
Mostly to those poor unfortunate writers who had the misfortune to submit a novel that describes how people look as though eyes (gold flecked green eyes!) and hair (tumbling curls of red!) are something a reader needs to know.
Here's the thing to remember: description that reveals character is more memorable than just knowing what I call wanted poster details (height hair color, tattoos etc.)
Callng this street Mayberry North tells me a lot more than "three stores and a blue truck"
So, have at it.
Tell me something about this street that reveals character.
20 words or fewer.
