I have an image in my mind but I can't describe the topography, so I would always repeat, "grounds", "a little elavation", "inside the forest","some mounds,"surrounded by houses", is there any references on how to produce this image much better for the reader?
The image in my mind is a settlement, the good forces are there to defend against the enemy forces and they are laying traps around the houses, the ground and etc. Its a war fiction. So I'd like to make good descriptions of warzones. Are there any references to that?
