These words show a picture. During my radio interview earlier this week with Neal Steele, on EXTRA 99.1, Neal read this sentence that begins one of the final chapters in my new book, Jungle Jeopardy.
I was pleased that he likes my writing, and his response started me thinking about the importance of visualization in writing.
As writers we struggle to use just the right words to allow the readers to see inside their own minds the images we are attempting to picture. We need for our readers to view the story in the vivid way we are trying so hard to reveal to them through our words. The artist is doing the same thing in a different way because, as artists, we are painting the picture to show our viewer a story.
