Rebecca McClanahan

Rebecca McClanahan, a Brevity author many times over, has published a revised edition of her popular writing guide Word Painting: The Fine Art of Writing Descriptively. Here’s a description from the publisher, followed by a link to the book’s page at Writers Digest Books:

Writing is an art, much like painting. The words you choose to describe your characters, scenes, settings, and so on—in fiction and nonfiction—need to illustrate the vision you have in your mind and capture the attention of readers. Word Painting Revised Edition is an inspiring examination of description in its many forms. Rebecca McClanahan’s thoughtful instruction and engaging exercises will teach writers how to develop their senses and powers of observation to uncover the rich, evocative words that accurately portray the mind’s images—and apply these descriptions to characters, settings, point of view, and more.
