    Think of it in this way, how does it make you feel, what do you smell, use your senses to dig deeper behind the words, such as:

    Terrorised:
    Terrifying
    Fearful
    Scary
    Black
    Dark
    Explosive
    Injury
    Pain
    Abusive
    Hurt
    Trauma
    Religious extremism.

    Tormented:
    Guilty
    Worried
    Nail biting
    Weary
    Scary
    Self inflicted
    Long term anxiety


    If I saw the two words together I would think the character was terrorised, very fearful for their safety, in a dark, dank place with no safe place to rest. It really gets your blood pumping. Who is doing it to the person, why are they doing it, is the character going to escape, what is the character feeling, who will help them and so on.

    See underneath the text to the feeling and you wont go far wrong.

    PS I got an 8 merit/A* in this years GCSE English Language (6 short of the 9).

    You have challenges ahead of you?

    PS I got a distinction in my BTEC Sport Science and achieved a pass on my Grade 2 Piano exam
