Part II

Looking over our comparisons of the Clutters

Some that I read yesterday- 

Herb is a average guy but is known by his peers. Him and his wife are difference in appearance.

Herb Clutter is a nice person.

How can I rewrite this to be better?

Herb Clutter is described as being the “master” of his town, with a jaw so strong that it can crack walnuts. His wife contrasts him because she has a damaged spine and is very nervous.

  • Take 1 minute to rewrite your answer.

Thinking about the Clutters

  • Kids are from your age to freshman in college
  • They’re a close family that’s known in their small community.
  • They seem to be slightly better off than everyone, but they’re NOT RICH!!
  • Before they were killed, no one in the town would lock their doors. They’re murder made some distrust.
