Descriptive phrases can be used to describe a setting, characters, actions, or emotions, which can help to create a sense of atmosphere and bring the writing to life. Additionally, descriptive phrases can help to convey the writer’s tone and perspective, and can also add depth and richness to the writing, making it more engaging for the readers.

You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.

Zig Ziglar

Using the five senses in writing (sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell) helps to create a more vivid and immersive experience for the reader. By including sensory details, the reader is able to connect with the story and characters on a deeper level and can better visualise and feel the setting and events of the story. Furthermore, sensory details can also be used to reveal character traits, create mood and atmosphere, and help to advance the plot.

A good writer will tell us what the world smells like, what the textures are, what the sounds are, what the light looks like, what the weather is.
