Some of the greatest pleasures in life are the simplest ones.

And that can be true in fiction, too.

Your novel doesn’t have to contain pages-long descriptions of shocking events in order to be powerful, says Kathryn Craft.

In fact, a decision to render the ordinary “extra” can prove to be just as memorable, if not more so, than the plot twist a reader didn’t see coming.

Craft shares examples of descriptive passages that breathe new life to universal and sometimes even mundane events in a post at Writer Unboxed.
