A Lesson by joanofbooke

add as much detail as you can but sometimes there can be beauty in siomplicity


When you write it is important to add a lot of detail, but at the same time you have to create balance.I know it may be confusing. What i mean is that detail is important, but always remember there is beauty in the simplicity of words;} And make it your own you are unique and special therefore your work should be treasured as just that.

Braylin's delicate sobs went unheard as she curled into a ball on her bed. She softly wiped the tears away with the back of her hand, but they kept descending down her cheeks. She closed her stinging eyes, slowly drifting off to sleep.
