Adjectives are words that describe nouns or other adjectives. Adjectives add detail to a story and help a reader visualize objects and are thus crucial to a story.

Examples

  • The girl was brushing her brown, curly hair.
  • Antonio smiled, petting the dark ginger cat.

Do's

  • Add rich, descriptive adjectives.

Don'ts

  • Don't add too many adjectives. It may make the sentence choppy and odd sounding.
