Using your 5 senses to descriptively write your story!

Our five senses are so important to our everyday lives but most of the time we take them for granted. We expect they will always work when we need them to.

When we write, we do this aswell. We forget about our characters using their 5 senses to describe a scenario or situation. Sometimes we don’t treat our characters as beings.

They are just characters we made in our minds, right? They aren’t breathing, living beings.. 

This is our job as writers – To give breath to a character so they can come alive.

Writing a short story or novel is much different than filming a movie or acting out a play. You have to create the visual world inside of the readers mind, without drawing it for them or creating a movie with actors and animations.

You have to build a world for your character to exist in but you need your character to “live” in this world. Describe their world to create a loophole inside of the mind of the reader, pull them out of reality.

Are you using your 5 senses when you’re writing?

Something major with writing your novel that can help set the entire mood of your novel is remembering that your character has 5 senses.

(Unless your character is blind, deaf or cannot smell) but your characters will always be able to use atleast one of these senses.

You can change your wording whether in first person or third person.

Examples:

Instead of not using your senses:

“When I walk into the abyss, it is very dark.”

Use your senses to create a much darker and suspenseful scenario:

“When I enter into the dark abyss, I can smell the horrid odor of burnt flesh. The distant sound of a blood curdling scream causes my stomach to turn.”

Or, In third person:

“Chloe enters the dark abyss, she smells the horrid odor of burnt flesh. The distant sound of a blood curdling scream causes her stomach to turn.”

It tells the reader that your character is entering an abyss that is dark, so you assume she cannot see her surroundings. The smell she is sensing is a warning sign that something awful has happened in the darkness and lastly, the blood curdling scream tells the reader the character is not alone and this is causing her stomach to feel ill.

Something as simple as using your 5 senses can create a world your reader will not want to put down!

Sleepwalker: A Keyhole Novel

Ashley Niallson has had a long 3 years of heartbreak while living in Chicago.. When her Aunt passes away and leaves Ashley the farm house, she is forced to head back home and remember the reason why she left in the first place..

My newest stand alone novel is based on a short story I have written called, “The Keyhole.” I felt like I needed to write more of a story for Ashley Niallson other than this short story so instead of releasing “The Keyhole” I decided to use it to inspire, “The Sleepwalker: A Keyhole Novel”

“Ashley Niallson has had a long 3 years of heartbreak while living in Chicago.. When her Aunt passes away and leaves Ashley the farm house, she is forced to head back home and remember the reason why she left in the first place..”

SLEEPWALKER

Update..

“I sat on the edge of the river of souls watching them all swirl around in the fluorescent water. Their silent screams of pain echoing as the realization set in, that they were only at the beginning of forever in Hell.. The thought of that echoed in the back of my mind, “Forever in Hell”.

-Lucy Morningstar, “Devils Fall”
