WRITE DESCRIPTION BETTER

An excerpt from just one of the online writing courses featured in the Habit Membership.

 

Writing Exercise

Depict a crowded scene (a sporting event, a park, a city sidewalk, a school lunchroom, etc.). Write as descriptively as you can, but with one stipulation: You can’t use adjectives or adverbs. Make nouns and verbs carry the freight.

MORE FROM THE HABIT

The Habit’s library of learning resources will sharpen your skills as a writer and help you develop your unique voice. But what really solidifies those gains will be a community of like-minded writers who give one another just a little more courage. 

A lot of my resources for writers are available for free here at TheHabit.co. If you join The Habit Membership, however, you will have full acess to a larger (and ever-growing) library of content.

But even more importantly, you will be a member of a community. You won’t just consume content; you will connect with other writers, benefitting from their wisdom and good will, and giving them your own. 

The Habit Membership is a culture of generosity.
