    Can someone help me create a really good imaginative paragraph about driving?

    Also I would like help on another paragraph including how a guy feels about a girl he likes, I do not know how to explain it in detail?!

    For driving, think of the sense. What can you hear? What does it sound like? What is the feel of the seats? How does it feel as the car pulls away, or takes a corner? What can you smell, inside the car or out? It gives a good chance to use metaphors. 'Black ribbon' is a common phrase to describe the road but you may be able to think of something better. What image could be used to compare the car? An animal of some sort?

    For both paragraphs, but especially the second one, use sentence lengths to show mood. A smooth journey should have long flowing sentences. A dramatic car chase needs short sentences, maybe grammatically incorrect.
    If the guy is feeling confused, make your style confusing, with half-finished sentences and repetition. If he is calm and happy, show this through longer, fluent sentences.

Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
