Last week I compiled a few questions that would help you find plot holes; this week I’m going to enlist a few more, but this time to help you describe a scene. Let’s imagine that your character sets foot into their new home for the first time. Now tell me:
- What does the character see?
- What do they hear?
- Any particular scents?
- Do they touch anything and what is the texture (rough, soft, smooth, grainy, etc.)?
- Are they or the objects they interact with cold, warm, hot, freezing?
- How does all of this make them feel (safe, uneasy, nostalgic, anxious, frightened, etc.)?
