Deviant ISLAND

Deviantly describe the scene without using the names of the objects. Don't use rocks, grass or bushes. Dig into what objects look and feel like rather than telling what they are.

Capture the senses' experience. What does it feel like to your whole body? Does it get inside your clothes? Does it get inside you? What does it smell like? Taste like? Sound like?

Go further and find a mood or personality of the place and let those inspire the descriptive words you choose.

Try unexpected adjectives and vivid verbs. For example, svelt, sleek, oozing, crouching aren't words normally associated with places, but can create fresh images.

This is a beautiful island, I've been subscribed to you for ages, though rarely do one of your prompts. This one I may actually do if I can stop procrastinating.

Ah, yes, procrastination. I know it well :-) I'm glad this one might be "the one" ;-) It sure is cool. It would look made up if it weren't real :-)
