I'm trying to describe a dark and quiet forest for a book. I'm stumped. How should I describe it?

You need to read novels. Lots of novels. Any novels. Notice that they all have perfect spelling, perfect punctuation, perfect composition. Notice where they use one space and where they use two. Notice that every speaker in a dialog gets a new paragraph, and every paragraph is preceded by a blank line. Notice any writing techniques or figures of speech. Take notes so you know where you found what you know. It takes a lot of reading to be a writer.

Don't go looking for cutesy lines to use in a story you are writing. The result makes it is obvious that you did that. Just tell your story whatever way you are able. I have a file of 850 lines that I have saved for thirty years. I have used five of them so far.

You could always try looking in a thesaurus to get ideas for related words. But, make sure not to use any words that you are not sure of.. or that would be out of your character to use. There is an online thesaurus at thesaurus.com.

Look up "Suicide Forest". It is very well described; you can almost see it.
