    Quick tip for writers!

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by Jonalexher, Nov 22, 2010.

    Fellow writers:

    Use Sensory Information!

    When you're writing a story, don't just describe what your character sees. Describe the smells, sounds, tastes, and touches.

    Sound
    Touch
    Taste
    Sight
    Smell

    Keep those 5 in mind and throw in a smell or a taste every once in a while.
    "Why," you ask? Because if you just include "Sight," the reader is going to feel like a spectator, and most of the time, you don't want that. If you include the other 4 in your story, the reader sometimes will feel like he's actually the character, if it's done correctly :]

    Hope this helps!
