Waking Up the Senses

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! Photo by Seemann┬ávia Morguefile
