Using the senses in descriptions.
When describing a person, we can use our senses.
Sight: Instead of saying: She is untidy you can say: As you enter her room you see her things lying everywhere; her clothes on the bed, her books on the carpet and all of her CDs on her desk.
Sound: Instead of saying: She is always talking you can say: You can always hear her chattering away. Itfs difficult to get a word in when you're with her.
Smell: Instead of saying: Uncle Harry had a great garden with lots of roses you can say: The scent of hundreds or roses filled the air of Uncle Harry's garden.
Taste: Instead of saying: She was an excellent cook you can say: You could tell she was an excellent cook from the first bite of her delicious, crunchy biscuits.
Touch: Instead of saying: She had nice skin you can say: Her skin was smooth and silky like a newborn baby's.
