Thanks to those who came last Sunday. I enjoyed the session and found it really useful. I think I am beginning to get a handle on “showing and telling” at last. 
For this coming Sunday, I thought we could have a look at description
Here are a few links. 
On describing characters:
On describing settings:
On description generally:

On not describing at all:

For the exercise, take a couple of pictures from a magazine or newspaper, one perhaps of a person or people and the other of a landscape, a room, or another setting, and try describing them. Bring those descriptions along, with the pictures, and then we can all see if we can visualise from what you have written and compare it with the original picture to see how close you got. 
I think this could be useful.
