Painting a picture using words through descriptive writing takes practice. But when a writer can make readers feel as though they are right there at the scene, the essay becomes vividly alive thanks to descriptive writing. Sense words, descriptive words, and plays on words are all tools that bring the writing to life. With such ‘pictures’, a writer will ensure that the reader won’t soon forget what has been written thanks to the mental visual that is created by the author’s descriptive writing. The ability to successfully paint a picture using words is one of the most effective tools in a writer’s skill set.
