Yesterday, you drew a detailed picture of the setting for your story. Today, your task is to think of adjectives and nouns that you could use to describe the scene.
Firstly, pick out things in the picture that you think are important. For example, it might be a table, a river or a swing.
Secondly, think of one (or two) adjectives you could use to describe this thing. For example you might have a large, oak table, a wide, murky river or a rusty, slightly broken swing.
Try to collect at least 10 groups of adjectives and nouns based on yesterday's picture. The more you collect now, the easier it will be to write some detailed description later.
