    I would like to learn how to use adjectives and adverbs effectively. Do you have any tips to do it so. Like in describing a boy walking in the street.

    " The little boy happily walked along the winding street towards her loving mother's arm."

    I read books everyday but they're not all! I want tips, specially form writers who knew the ins and outs of telling vivid imagery of scenes.

    Re: tips!

    To be really honest, Blouen, this is something that comes from within the writer. Some are brilliant at vivid description and narrative, and some are hopeless. You have to analyse what it is that makes one good and one not so good, and try to use the same technique as the good one.

    Why don't you try a series of short descriptions - like your boy walking down the street - and see what we think?
