Sensory Language

Sensory Language is writing that describes a subject using the five senses; touch, smell, sound, taste, and sight, in order to create a vivid image. An example of sensory language would be:

The cool summer breeze rolled over the green hills. The aroma of fresh cut grass filled the air as I sat sipping sweet iced lemonade.


Mood is the atmosphere the author creates to invoke feelings in the reader.

These pictures can also cause you to feel certain way similar to what a good author does.

Plot Development

Plot Development is how the story progresses through the Exposition, Rising Action, to the Climax, then Falling Action and finally the Resolution.

Character Development

Character development is how the character changes or grows through out the story. An example of character development is when a character may start out selfish then by the end of the story they learn a lesson and begin sharing.

Writing Process


Brainstorming takes place before the organizer to think of a story.


Setting is the time and place of the story.

5 W's in a story

The 5 W's are

Who's in the story,

What happens,

Where it takes place,

When the story is, and

Why it happened.

Hook Statements

A Hook Statement is the first one or two sentences in a paper that grabs the reader's attention and serves as a way for a reader to determine if they want to read the paper.


The Outline is the basic plot of your story that has the main events that take place in each paragraph and how the characters react to the event.

Revising and Editing

Revising and editing is done after you finish your rough draft. You reread you draft and correct grammar errors and spelling before typing your final copy.
