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.

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