Update (12/10): This Lesson was chosen for the weekly ezine over at F2K. I’m super-chuffed and amazingly humbled.
So, Lesson 2 was a doozy for me and I suppose it’s because I’ve never really paid that much attention to which of my senses were activated when I read. I always relied on the overall feel and not the specific evocation of the senses from each sentence read.
Write one (1) paragraph using all the senses. Include at least three (3) words or phrases that suggest something without saying what the sense is.
