Writing Prompt: Killing the Adjectives

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."

Last week we asked you to write a paragraph that was overflowing with adjectives. This week, write the same paragraph, but without using any adjectives. If you didn't do last week's prompt, you can go back and do it now!
