Sensuality and the Five Senses
We’ve all done it, written a scene that should be perfect. The characters are fully fleshed out and there’s tension a-plenty. But when you’re done, the finished product just doesn’t deliver on the promise you had in mind. It’s less than the sum of its parts.
One way to enrich scenes like that is through your characters’ senses, to make your reader feel as if he or she is going through what your characters are experiencing. In her Sunday morning session Sensuality and the Five Senses, Laura Parker Castoro will show you how to create five-sense scenes appropriate to your story, to make those otherwise dull scenes spring to life.
In ths session, you’ll learn how to create a scene that works with all five senses, use comparison and contrast in compelling writing, and use hands-on worksheets to help you create effective moods, characters, and emotions, using each of the five characters as clues.
