I’m taking an online course on writing and today’s lesson is about writing with the senses. We are told that writers usually gravitate towards their most developed senses even in writing. I realized that, most of the time, I use the senses of sight and hearing when I write.
Today’s exercise was to write about a family event. The aim is to focus on a small aspect of it, one that happened in a short time frame. But the catch is this: we are to write about the it only in terms of color, texture, sounds, and smells.
Worth a try if your want to wake up your senses!
