To that end, try this tip: Place yourself in a situation where you can see or overhear what needs to be written in a passage. For example, if you’re uncertain how to describe the way people react when their favorite team scores, go to a sports bar during a big game. If you need to describe two people talking in hushed whispers to one another, go somewhere where people do that, such as a coffee shop.
