Tip: An adjective is a word that modifies a noun or pronoun and can come before or after the word it is modifying. It gives us information about the noun – description, limit, expand, etc. For instance: the rushing stream, the ancient tree, her wrinkled face, his bulging muscles. Use adjectives sparingly but to good purpose and be specific. Don’t tell us about the red car. Tell us about the maroon Corvette.

Thought for the day: “Write while the heat is in you…. The writer who postpones the recording of his thoughts uses an iron which has cooled to burn a hole with. He cannot inflame the minds of his audience.” – Henry David Thoreau
