A WRITER’S RESOURCE TO HELP SHOW AND TELL WITH DESCRIPTIVE WORDS

Written by dcakers@dc-akers.com on January 13, 2014. Posted in Indie Writers News

CoverThis is a little something that I put together with several of my author friends and now it’s time to share.

Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned writer, most of us struggle with the age old battle of “Show. Don’t tell”.  But let’s face it—sometimes you have to tell and when you do, it needs to be in a way that captures the reader’s attention and draws them into the world you are trying to create. Coming up with descriptive words can sometimes be a challenge, not to mention knowing where to start.

Well now there is Word Bank. Word Bank is a great writing tool to help you, the writer, be descriptive whether you are trying to show or tell. Word Bank has been designed with the writer in mind; it’s a quick-no frills reference tool with an easy-to-use navigation list. Just select the word you are trying to describe from the table of contents such as “eyes” and get a wonderful list of creative ways to describe a person’s eyes. Then choose what you like from the list or mix and match to come up with your own descriptive style.

What makes Word Bank so powerful is that it’s created by many contributors, not just one person. Word Bank is updated quarterly at no additional charge for those who have already purchased it, so if you have fantastic descriptive words that you would like to share and have included, submission is just a click away.

P.S.

I would like to thank all the authors and individuals who have contributed to this project. Your endless hours of time, knowledge and ideas have culminated in the completion of this wonderful resource.

Always,
D.C. Akers

Like many who enjoy the fantasy genre, Akers started reading it as an adolescent. He was fascinated with Tolkien's Lord of the Rings and Bram Stoker's Dracula. He currently enjoys reading works by Dean Koontz, Heather Brewer, J.K. Rowling, and Rick Riordan. Akers enjoys creating a fantasy world with compelling storylines, while injecting humor and a touch of drama into the action as he did with his first book Terra Vonnel and the Skulls of Aries, which has received rave reviews. "I start every story with this thought: Where can I take my audience now? To me it's about the journey, the escape into a world filled with the fantastic and the unexpected. There is nothing like an adventure that takes you further from reality with every turn of the page." D.C. Akers was born in Texas and after spending several years working in accounting, Akers began to pursue his childhood dream of becoming a writer.
