"The role of a writer is not to say what we all can say, but what we are unable to say." - Anais Nin
Christian Fiction Writer
"Description is not, as we've already pointed out, 'all that flowery stuff.' It isn't mere embellishment, something we stitch on top of our writing to make it more presentable. It isn't optional. The success of all fiction, and most poetry and nonfiction, depends in part on description's image-making power." Word Painting, A Guide to Writing More Descriptively, by Rebecca McClanahan.
