Writing Prompt #41

We’ve all run across it. Sections of writing that fall flat. Verbs don’t convey enough action. Explaining how a character felt instead of showing us. I could go on, but you get the idea. Using either a piece of your own writing (my first draft of any work has very little snap) or something published (if published, remember to take into consideration fair use and don’t go re-writing more than a couple sentences).

Here is an example of my brilliantly flat writing to spark your imagination:

Carla stood in front of the racks of clothes trying to find an outfit for Simone to wear. She gravitated to the racks of barely there dresses. I went along behind her putting dresses she picked to try on back on the rack.
