In class we have been reading excerpts from The Book of Awesome, by Neil Pasricha, to help us learn how to write more descriptively. Like Joseph Conrad said in 1897, ” The power of written word is to make you hear, to make you feel…. it is above all else, to make you see.”
The following post is dedicated to all things Awesome. Please leave your awesome paragraphs here and feel free to comment on the comments left! Remember, if you can think of a positive suggestion to improve a piece, please tell the author kindly.
