Stuck in the Lift

Aditya is an imp who cannot sit still but he is a great writer - when he puts his mind to it.His piece is fabulous because of what I call a "mini portrait" - the brief description of his friend Sharad and also short phrases that make the writing very visual - like "twinkle in his eye" and "shuffled clumsily through his bag" or auditory like "screeched to a halt". We call this "using the cinematic technique" because the writing unfolds like a movie.Try gathering more such phrases from books you like to read, and note them in a diary for future use.
