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!


~ REMEMBER ~ SEE ~ HEAR ~ TASTE ~ SMELL ~ TOUCH ~ 6TH SENSE ~ INTUITION ~

I co-founded and managed a successful author and writer group on Long Island for five years. During events with publishers and authors I learned what matters, what agents are looking for, and the benefits and pitfalls of traditional publishing vs. self-publishing.

I've gained a lot of tips and tidings on my writing journey and want to share what I know.

Besides my passion for writing, I'm a fitness enthusiast, and I love coffee, chocolate, and animals. I'm mom to two amazing young men, and I live on Long Island with my husband, four zany cats, and the sweetest dog ever.

Whether you're new to writing, ready to query, or about to submit your manuscript,  welcome, you've come to the right place.
