The Five Senses
To breathe life into your writing, appeal to your readers by incorporating the five senses or at least two or three. Readers want to know what your characters see, smell, taste, touch, and hear. Sensory details help the reader interpret the information they collect. This engagement can transport the reader into the scene. Engaging the reader by using only the sense of sight leaves your story one dimensional and boring. Read the passage below. Now imagine the same passage without sound, without scents, without knowing what the character tasted and physically felt. BORING!
