How would you describe these flowers? Are they pink and white or are they more than that? Do they need to be more than that?
I was trying to write a 3000-word story for a contest and didn't get too far. I had a vague idea of where the story was going. I'd figured out how to incorporate three contest requirements into it. The problem? Narration. Description. How to explain what the woman is doing and why.
I don't seem to have a problem coming up with ideas. I don't flinch when it comes to writing dialogue. Piece of cake. But descriptions? Man, that's hard. I'm a writer, I'm supposed to be able to do it. Are certain writers better at descriptions than others?
There are times when I think I should stick to writing poetry. Or non-fiction. Or maybe plays.
And now back to those pretty flowers. How would you describe them? (oh, you can click on the picture to see a larger version).
