A logophile’s plead

A writer needs words for descriptions.

Remove the fear and behold each word as an icebreaker towards conversing wih your readers. 

Adverbs or similes enhance visualisation.

E.g. The road was sparsely populated.

The vegetation was as dry as kindling.

Desired emotional response

Look our for a word that will elicit an effective emotional reaction from your readers. When you say, “I looked at him, unable to tear my gaze from his face.”

It sets a neutral tone. You don’t know the mood of the speaker. The word ‘looked’ produces a tentative mood. What if you use  ‘glared’ instead of ‘looked’ ? The tone would appear angry.
