Feel free to print out these articles or save to your computer for your personal use, but please do not copy them to your website or blog.  Here is a return link to the same list of writing how-tos on my blog page.

Note: There is more! Because the website traffic is so high on these "how to write" articles, I have expanded two of them from the roughly 2,000 words per article that you see on the website/blog to 15,000 words each. I am offering them as Kindle documents on Amazon, if you are interested. Here are the links if you would like to have a look and download a free sample.

How to Write Descriptions of Eyes and Faces
(Just so you know, this 15,000-word book contains the 3,651-word Eye Color list from my website plus the 1,731-word article How to Describe Eyes, also from my website. The other 9, 618 words in the book are all-new material.) You can find it at Amazon.com (USA),  in the UK (Amazon.uk product page), in Deutschland (Amazon.de product page), and in France (Amazon.fr product page).

How to Write Descriptions of Hair and Skin
(Just so you know, this 14,900 word book contains the 2,000-word article HT Describe Hair plus the 600-word Hair Color list from my website. The other 12,300 words in the book are all-new material.) You can find it at Amazon.com (USA),  in the UK (Amazon.uk product page), in Deutschland (Amazon.de product page), and in France (Amazon.fr product page)

How to Write Descriptions of Eyes, Faces, Hair, Skin
This is a unabridged combination of the How to Write Descriptions of Eyes and Faces and How to Write Descriptions of Hair and Skin for those who are interested in having the full text of both books at a cheaper price than buying them both individually. You can find this book at Amazon.com (USA), in the UK (Amazon.uk product page), in Deutschland (Amazon.de product page), and in France (Amazon.fr product page).
