Descriptions du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

This book is for fiction writers who love physical descriptions of characters.

Here, you get an abundance of descriptive terms for hair and skin. Each section centers on a type of description, such as Hair Color (for example, "Bleached blond hair") or Hair Type (for example, straight, wavy, curly, and kinked). Each section lists its descriptive terms alphabetically with full explanations. You can read the lists to learn new terms, or you can look up a specific term.

The hair section starts with hair type and hairstyle. It details how the appearance of one's hair can shape one's gender identity and ethnic identity. The next sections show how your fictional character's hair might move, feel (for example, brittle, greasy, silky, or springy) and smell (for example, like cigarettes, deep fryer oil, perfume, or wood smoke). All this leads to more than 2,000 words explaining 72 different color names to assign to hair that is black, blond, brown, gray, red, or white. There is also a section on highlights and lowlights.

The skin section continues the emphasis on sensory description with sections on what your fictional character's skin might feel like, smell like, and taste like. Learn how the placement of wrinkles can show whether your character has spent a lifetime smiling or frowning.

There is a section on the erotic aspects of skin. Other sections list ways in which your fictional character might modify his or her skin, including tattoos, piercing, and cosmetic surgery. All this leads to more than 2,000 words explaining 43 different color names to assign to skin that is dark, medium tone, or pale.

Who may benefit from this book? Anyone who wants a quick prompt or idea so as not to lose his writing momentum. Readers for whom English is a second language may enjoy the in-depth explanations of American English terms. Authors writing in genres that demand much physical description (for example, fantasy fiction and romance fiction) may also find this book useful.

How to Write Descriptions of Hair and Skin is about 14,900 words in total. Just so you know, this 14,900 word book contains the 2,000-word article HT Describe Hair from my blog plus the 600-word Hair Color list from my website. The other 12,300 words in the book are all-new material.

Also, for clarity, this book was published using Amazon.com's Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology, which prevents unauthorized copying of the text (for example, in the case of ebook pirating). An inevitable side-effect of DRM is that you, the purchaser, cannot copy the text either (and I apologize for the inconvenience). Therefore, to guide you in your buying decision, know that this book is read-only. Thank you for reading.

I never realized how complicated Hair and Skin can be in writing. While nobody every wants to read indepth details in a novel, having access to the words that the readers will visualize is great.

"She pulled her long, brown hair into a ponytail, showing him how young she really is" ... is no where near as interesting as... "Her wavy, chestnut tresses are pulled back, revealing her youth. A secret she had kept from him all night."

Details like the hair being chestnut instead of brown, or that fact that a ponytail brings a youthful look are small details that make sentences more pleasing to read. And this book has so much more.

This book has considerable overlap with the author's edition on face and eyes, but they are individuals. I didn't see until too late that they could be purchased together, which I would recommend.

If you are struggling with what your characters look like, how to describe them, and what descriptors to use beyond the bleakly general, these short books will help you out.

For example, I now know my dark-haired male lead actually has hair the color of dark chocolate, with highlights of walnut. It's thick and wavy, the texture of bird feathers when you run your hands through it. I found the descriptions of hair more useful than the ones of skin, but maybe that's just me.

What really bothered me was the lack of description of hair CUTS, especially for me. I can now describe hair type, color, texture, and what the rain does to it....but not what the haircut is like! For an entire book describing hair and skin, that seems like a shocking oversight.

I liked this book as a quick little reference. The author's added descriptions about how the subject matter could be incorporated into your characters and your books was very helpful. It added a perspective on possibilities for character development. The note of cliches was also helpful. This is a helpful guide to any writer.

One of the first things that impressed me about "How to Write Descriptions of Hair and Skin" was the lack of typos. I'm a reader who becomes distracted by grammatical and spelling mistakes.

Val Kovalin's book provides adjective lists. But it does much more than that. It describes why someone would have a certain hairstyle or skin type. Is your protagonist rich? Vain? An optimist? A dreamer? Healthy? Old? Show the reader by choosing appropriate hair and skin types.

This is an excellent reference manual to keep close-by as you write.

This book has been a big help to me. I find it hard at times to think of the perfect descriptive word for the image in my head. The lists of colors accompanied by descriptions of each is tremendously useful. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to write.
