Look at the two excerpts below:


1. "The sky was blue, the grass was green, Amy felt happy."


2. "The sun sat high in the azure sky, a bright ball of light. Amy lay on the grass, her bare feet resting on her sister's back. It was the little things that made her feel at peace."

Which text set the scene and took you, the reader, there in your mind? The second, right?


This is how we want to improve our own writing, through vivid description and a wide range of adjectives.


Let's give it a go!
