Writing Detail and Description

The easiest way to improve your writing tenfold rests in using detail and description. No problem, you say. I’ll just throw in a few extra adjectives and adverbs. Well, that’s one way, but it’s not the best way to make your stories more vivid.

Writing detail and description involves incorporating all our senses, not just sight, using specific words, and incorporating metaphor and simile while avoiding cliché. It may sound daunting, but when you know how to do it, you add another dimension to your writing and give your readers a complete experience.

Writing Detail and Description is available as a self-directed program and combines ten or more instructional videos you access online at your convenience, including:

  • A Bit of Inspiration
  • Not Just Adjectives and AdverbsDetail___Description_B
  • Specificity
  • Sensory Detail
  • Cliché
  • Scent and Memory
  • Historical Context
  • Simile and Metaphor
  • Writing with Photographs
  • Perfectionism
  • Writer’s Block

In addition to the videos, you receive:

  • group coaching calls (group program only)
  • individual coaching
  • exclusive access to an online community where you can post your stories, request feedback, ask questions, respond to fellow participants’ stories and comments (group program only)
  • outlines, worksheets, handouts, and other written materials to complement the training modules
  • random notes of encouragement and writing tips to keep you on track
  • on-demand access to training modules to review at your leisure for six full months
  • incentives to those who participate fully in the program
  • and much, much more

You may be thinking: Wow, a program that includes this much must cost a fortune! It should, but it doesn’t. I want as many people to participate as possible, so I’ve deliberately kept the price down.

Plus, Writing Detail and Description comes with a money-back guarantee. Go through the first two modules, do the work recommended, and if you find the program doesn’t meet your needs, just let me know, and I’ll refund your payment in full. No questions asked.
