    One thought on “How to Write Descriptions of Hair and Skin”

    1. A very useful resource and a bargain for the price. I was very happy when I found it in the Kindle store.

    2. I want to give this a 4 but I really can't. It's too short and choppy and the beginning wasn't all that engrossing.BUT. I did truly love some of the color breakdowns and thoughts that it collects all together. And the different ways of saying things, talking about paints and what all these things say about point of view and character disposition.

    3. Great definitionsVery helpful and descriptive. I'm always stumped when it comes to writing my characters hair and skin descriptions without using the same old words. This gem has given me the confidence to write more freely.

    4. I found this extremely helpful in building a basic description of a character. Now, you could use this to get every little detail, but I believe readers like to add detail of their own to a certain extent. I love this book.

    5. This doesn't tell you anything you don't already know but it really gets you focused for writing those descriptions. It's handy reference to keep on hand if you're a writer.
