Hey there, Christian Indies,
The first time I really thought about descriptive language was when I learned the song “America, The Beautiful.” I loved the phrases, “amber waves of grain,” and “purple mountain majesties.” The impact of those beautiful images set to that tune wells up inside me whenever I see something majestic and grand in God’s creation. I understand that the composer of the song was trying to find a way to talk about that feeling, and the best way to do that was to describe what he saw.
I want to be able to capture a scene in that sort of poetic way. Alas, I find it difficult to get beyond, “the pavement was slick,” or some such thing. How can I flex (and grow!) my scenery description muscle?
Tune in to find out.
See you there,
