About This Class

Hello Writer!

Welcome to the course where I show you the major differences between lengthy and short writing, and how to create descriptions that match your style and genre, keeping the reader interested. Don't make the same mistakes that so many novice authors make and instead learn how to write descriptions that interest a reader, rather than bore them.

My name is Matthew Dewey and I am a writer. It is hard to say when my passion for writing began, but if I can recall it all started back in primary school. A small, pale child with not much to say, but plenty to write, or in most cases scribble, across a page. From there writing became a hobby, moving on to become a part-time job writing articles on various subjects from technology to programming. Suddenly, the spark was ignited and I wrote my first novel. From there I was hooked onto something that was akin to a calling.

Enough monologue, it is time to tell you what this course is worth to you; this course is the fifth in a series of courses that I am creating to tackle the problems that all writers face. If you wish to learn how to create interesting and clear writing then look no further. I do the research and compile them into short, simple courses in which I give you the most important information on the subject. What is more, any questions found fitting of a new course will be accepted and answered. If, however, the question is one that requires more attention I will be make a course dedicated to answering that question!

In this course I will show you:

  • How to write lengthy descriptions

  • How to write short descriptions

  • How to remove unnecessary details

  • How and when to use analytical and emotional writing

  • Along with some additional tips and advice when writing in general!

Welcome to the Descriptive Writing: The Good and the Bad Course! I will show you everything you need to know to create a interesting and enjoyable description that your reader can enjoy by helping you find your writing style! See you soon!
