You have to write. A lot of writers have this vague hope that the elves will come in the night and write it for you. They don’t.

3 Literary Techniques, Part Two: Description New @ The Beginning Writer

Description is an important part of storytelling because it helps you to paint a mental image of the particulars in your story.

A lot of people have a problem with this though. It’s easy to think of dialogue because you can imagine a conversation. But we don’t often make a habit of describing our surroundings or the people we meet, and if we do, it’s very simply, which doesn’t work too well in a novel.

You can’t write a story the same way you would tell a story. When writing description, it helps to remember that the reader isn’t you and has no idea what you are seeing, hearing, or feeling.
