Mini-lesson Monday (Part 2):
✨This passage by Frances Hodgson Burnett is noteworthy for how simply yet effectively it describes ACTIVITY: (both physical movement and internal thoughts).
It does this in two ways:
✒️ Firstly, by using SHORT SENTENCES that express some kind of tension and transformation.
✒️ Secondly, by including A SINGLE ADVERB in the whole section: and notice how a single adverb can be so effective when used appropriately in writing.
For you: Can you find that adverb?
💡 HINT: it is synonymous with ‘investigative’ or ‘intensely analytical especially with regard to a person’.
I hope Hodgson Burnett’s clear and simplified writing style will give you new ideas on how to improve your own writing!
