A-Z Challenge: I Day
It's probably the most important thing you can do when you write, but how, exactly, does one do it? I don't know. I'm still learning!
I know you can bring the reader into your story by giving them characters they can identify with -- not too perfect, not too evil.
Involve them in the story by bringing in the five senses - Sight, smell, taste, touch, and hearing, so that they really feel like they're there in the story. Someone once told me, after you write your draft and done your edits, do a sense edit, and add a sense for every. single. page. It takes forever, but I think it really helps.
What about you? Any tips on involving the reader?
