Writing Prompt: Death by Adjective

Writing prompt C.S. Lewis once cautioned writers to be careful of overusing adjectives. "Instead of telling us the thing is 'terrible' describe it so that we'll be terrified. Don't say it was 'delightful'; make us say 'delightful' when we've read the description."

But sometimes it's fun to just go crazy with adjectives. So write a paragraph that drips with adjectives - just to get them all out of your system! Next week we'll ask you to write the same paragraph without any adjectives.
