Writing Challenges: Inspiration and ideas to spark your creativity every day

Write a description of a place, person or event in 3-5 paragraphs without using any adjectives. Finding the right noun – instead of piles of adjectives – will improve your writing, allowing you "to show, not tell." For this exercise, you can either jump in and try writing adjective-free or you can take two steps: write the description with adjectives, then strip them out, and revise by choosing stronger nouns that describe on their own. You'll see the importance of word choice, something your favorite authors know. Post your work! [Illustration: Brett Jordan, Unsplash]
