Visual violet Viola #AtoZchallenge

The birds have been able to drink without me breaking the ice all week and the muddy grass is now covered with shades of blue, pink, yellow and violet.  I need to get better at describing things like seasons and the viola in my garden was roped in to help.

Something I need to work on when I’m editing is the senses.  I visualise the story and try to write what I see, but I’m not sure how well I then spell that out for others to hear.  A recent writing workshop I attended reminded me to check I had all the senses covered not least because we all take in information differently.  What’s your preference?  Do you know?  Do you prefer to see, hear, smell, touch or taste things?

Visual violet Viola called for a short post preparing you for my marathon W.  As we get towards the end of AtoZ’s there’s still lots of variety.

My AtoZchallenge posts are about writing, parts of my novels or some research I need to do for them.  I’m not allowing myself to write about anything other than topics linked to the books, my books.  The current titles that I’m writing about are ‘Bags’, ‘Holiday stories’ and ‘Dream Gardener’.

  1. I’m really bad at description altogether! Probably because I tend to not pay much attention to it myself when I’m reading. But a few snippets here and there (please not a whole paragraph all in one go!) can really help set the scene.
