Wisdom Of Writer: The Best Description

When you think about the power of details in writing, you’re probably considering two ways of doing it: you either try to create an image as detailed as possible so your readers can really visualize whatever you’re describing, or you just give a few important points and let the rest of it flourish in your readers’ minds.

After reading this quote by Stephen King I concluded that a combination of the two ways is probably the best approach:

“Description begins in the writer’s imagination, but should finish in the reader’s.”


PS: If you’re serious about writing and you want to have a long-lasting website that stands out of the crowd, check out one of the best SEO tools out there, Mangools.com, and get on the first page of search engines. You can find my full Mangools review here).

  1. I think that is a really good way of looking at the idea of writing.
    Hitchcock used to say that the suspense came in the holding of the weapon because once the bullet had been fired the suspense was gone.
    This I think is very much like writing however I think that its important to recognise that we are all different.
    I for example write very much in a narrative that is based around fact or logic rather than creativity and imagination.
    I think that its really important just to be comfortable and happy with the way that you write.

    • Yes, Paul! And the fact that we are all different is the best part of writing. Also, we will attract the type of reader that loves OUR way of writing, which is exactly what we need. Thank you very much for reading! 😀

  2. Excellent advice. Keep up the good work. My favorite Stephen King quote is, “People think I must be a very strange person. This is not correct. I have the heart of a small boy. It is in a glass jar on my desk.” 😉
