Link of the Day: Verbs kick-start sentences

Check out this writing lesson on dynamic verbs from San Fransisco journalist Constance Hale, via The New York Times. After you read it, take Hale’s suggestion: Practice. Find something to watch on campus – an athletic event (perhaps The Shorthorn softball game, a residence hall ice cream social, a squirrel frolicking between students on the UC mall … or a story you are working on). Watch with intention and describe what you see. Open your senses. Consider how best to unfold the scene.

Whether two sentences or 10, show off your practice here.
