ABSTRACT
The article presents views of author on writing. In writing, there are infinite ways of identifying the same thing. One uses tools like adjectives, nouns, verbs, dialogue, plot, character, setting, senses and sensory writing is the most memorable to break down the world into manageable bits. Writing is about process, not product. Armed with these writing-practice rules, a teacher would do well to take his students on a field trip a real one, to somewhere outside, with places one can park the students and have them write for 10-minute stretches.
