Product Description
There’s an old saying among writers: Much of what you are writing about is in your head, not in your notes.

Too many of us, when we are given the task of gathering information about a place, situation or person—and then boiling that information down into words on paper—are obsessed with taking notes.

But what if, after you sit down to write about something, you have no notes--or inadequate notes at best--to refer to? You know that a piece of writing with "thick description" or word pictures can be much more compelling than one lacking in description.

So what are you as a writer to do?

Answer: The human brain is an amazing tool. Have your doubts about that? Take a look at this easy, simple in-class "blindfolded classmate" exercise to prove this point!
