There are seven (yep, SEVEN) senses you want to bring into your writing:

  1. Touch
  2. Taste
  3. Sight
  4. Smell
  5. Sound
  6. Emotion
  7. Humour

When you’re editing your first draft, take a look at your scenes and see if you can pull in these senses (not all of them, all at once).  You’ll deepen the writing and ground the reader in the story.
