How to Make Your Descriptions Less Boring

We’ve all been warned about the dangers of using too much description. Readers don’t want to read three paragraphs about a sunset, we’re told. Description slows down a story; it’s boring and self-indulgent. You should keep your description as short and simple as possible. For those who take a more scientific approach to writing fiction, arbitrary rules abound: One sentence per paragraph. One paragraph per page. And, for god’s sake, “Never open a book with weather” (Elmore Leonard).

But what this conventional wedding wisdom fails to take into account is the difference between static and dynamic description. Static description is usually boring. It exists almost like a painted backdrop to a play. As the name suggests, it doesn’t move, doesn’t interact or get interacted with.

There were clouds in the sky.
Her hair was red with hints of orange.
The house had brown carpeting and yellow countertops.

In moderation, there’s nothing wrong with static description. Sometimes, facts are facts, and you need to communicate them to the reader in a straightforward manner.

But too much static description, and readers will start to skim forward. They don’t want to read about what the house looks like or the stormy weather or the hair color of each of your protagonist’s seventeen cousins.

Why? Because they can tell it’s not important. They can afford to skip all of your description because their understanding of the story will not be impacted.

That’s where dynamic description comes in. Dynamic description is a living entity. It’s interactive, it’s relevant. It takes on the voices of your narrators and characters. In short, it gives us important information about the story, and it can’t be skimmed over.

So how do you make your description more dynamic so that it engages your readers and adds color and excitement to your story? Here are a few tips.

(I have a TON more tips about setting and description. These are just a few. But I’m trying to keep this short, so if you have any questions or want more advice about this, please feel free to ask me.)

capismycopilot  asked:

have you ever had to deal with any biphobia at a pride event?

Yeah. Nothing crazy though? but definitely the implication that i didn’t belong there. Side-Eyes, eyerolls, etc. Id rather not go into detail because it’s not important.

What was important was a moment I had with this older Bi man. I was decked out in Bi colors and had a shit ton of Bi colored beads on and he came up to me like “hey friend! can i have some!” we were about to walk the Parade for Pridelines - a really cool organization for LGBT youth - so everyone had signs that said “I have Pride because…” and they would fill it in. His said “I have Pride because I am Bisexual, I’m married, and I have HIV” so I get up and I was like “yeah man ofcourse!”

“thanks! it’s cool to see people being prideful about being Bi. Those colors are sparse this year” and i was like “Yeah, I’m sure there’s more but some of them feel like they can’t.” “Which is bullshit” “Right” “I want to thank you for being decked out. I clearly didn’t dress up in colors like I wanted to” he gestured to his white shirt and shorts and then continued “but I saw you and I suddenly felt ashamed for being so scared. How stupid is that? I’m 60, went through the AIDS epidemic, and scared over wearing Bi colors.” We chuckled a bit and I said “Hey man, that’s part of the reason why I did it. I was nervous too but I knew I’d regret it if I didn’t because other people need to see that not only we exist but that we belong” “Well Thank you for pushing through that and helping other Bis out here who see that and feel validated. You’re doing good things by being dressed up.” And we hugged it out for what seemed like forever.

That moment made my entire pride to the point where I even forgot I encountered petty biphobia here and there until you asked this ask.

they both have so many different feelings about each other piled up on top of the other that they don’t know how to interact anymore. it’s not something that can be resolved any time soon but i’m sure their cooperation will one day be a big step for them in the future

as long as we’re all together, it doesn’t really matter, right?

I’m not sure how I feel about the new dresses. And am I right in drawing Chloe with pink in her hair? Because that’s what it looks like.

There’s a huge whiteboard wall in front of my desk at work and I recently convinced my coworkers that it would be okay to fill up a section of it with fanart. They know about the blog but many of them haven’t seen much of the fanart being done so I thought it’d be great to share! I’m not sure how the IT department feels about me using up a bunch of the color ink but  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Hopefully we can get better pictures than these quick phone photos that I took after putting on the last few at the bottom today. Uh it’s obvious I had no plan going in as to where to put anything. ._.

I keep getting comments about the ratio of Tweek/Craig fanart to everything else hahaha. 

The Butterfly in chapter 34

I don’t usually do analysis like this because they mostly deal with symbolism and opinions rather than concrete facts but anyways, here’s my thoughts about the butterfly scene,
There’s a parallel in this chapter which I think can only remind us about how Sangwoo feels. How he’s always felt (mostly before Bum showed up and actually gave him some purpose to live for). He’s empty… he’s dead inside.

And I still don’t think Sangwoo actually confessed but if he did, this is the only reason. He’s lost all hope and is tired. He’s also given up on Bum. That would be the only reason that would make him confess.
There’s also something else. There’s a butterfly! And Sangwoo is staring at it. Now I’m not sure if the color of the butterfly matters but I heard butterflies sometimes are thought to be the spirit of the dead. The text that follows the panel makes me wonder if it’s actually the symbolism that Koogi used,

If you look at the previous panel, its shadow on Sangwoo’s head looks as if ‘Sangwoo is marked’, it almost looks threatening,

And after a few seconds, Sangwoo’s expression changes,

and in the next panel, he either wants to catch the butterfly or scare it away (followed by another suspicious text that makes me wonder if it actually has to do with Sangwoo’s dead family!),

Some people believe the yellow butterfly symbolizes HOPE! Either way, it’s something Sangwoo either scares away or can’t catch. And it works for both. There’s a thin line (the glass) separating the two.
