Writing Challenge: Emotional Descriptions

Today’s writing challenge: Have two different characters describe the same thing – one uses dispassionate terms, while the other uses emotional terms. (Note: dispassionate is not the same as accurate. Neither character should use any numbers.) For example, one might describe a haircut as shoulder length with bangs, while the other might say cute and sassy. Think of Spock and McCoy describing the same scene as an exaggerated example.

 

Which do you find easier to write?
