I think I’ve talked about imagery before, but yesterday I was reading about detail.
It’s the small things that you add to your writing that brings it to life. Such as:
The reflection of the clouds in a puddle
The waiter, with a mole on his cheek where a black hair protrudes.
The colours of autumn leaves (they’re not all brown).
A cream vase filled with red and blue anemones.
The bubbles on the inside of a bottle.
Cable knit jumpers.
The crumbly texture of carrot cake.
A white damask tablecloth with a gravy stain.
The blood red velvet petals of a rose.
I bet you didn’t even need the pictures did you? 😉
Yesterday’s prompt about the family meal turned into the start of a story about a man having a heart attack in a restaurant, at a family meal. I couldn’t help it, I was in one of those moods 😉 Today’s prompt is a single bed. Hmmmmmm 🙂
