Creative Writing Exercise 1 – The Boy Walked
Show, don’t tell – developing a single sentence: With a few simple adjectives and adding of the character’s emotions you can greatly develop a sentence. I started below by randomly writing a simple sentence and then by giving it a little thought I developed it and wrote the second sentence.
- The boy walked down the street to where his grandmother lived.
- The boy, not overly excited to see his grandmother, approached her home with trepidation, for the fear of kisses and ruffled hair was increasing with each step he took.
