One of the best skills a writer can have is being able to use words that can create images and/or memories, smells, sounds and emotions in the reader. This is known as “painting a picture with words.” For example, let’s look at the following sentences:
Walking along the beach, she felt the warm, sun baked sand as it softly oozed through her toes. Closing her eyes, she could hear the seagulls hawking as they darted sporadically around the sunbathers.
What images or memories come to mind when you read these sentences? Can you imagine the feel of the sand oozing through your own toes? Can you hear the seagulls hawking? Can you feel the warm sun? These words are creating a picture, restoring memories, providing you with sound and affecting your emotions.
