How to use the Sensory Check

It’s important to use all five senses in your writing. 

Every writer has a tendency to favor one or two of their senses over the others, and this affects the way that he or she experiences the world, processes information and makes memories. This means that we tend to describe characters, settings or actions using words related to our own favored senses. 

Writing that skews too far toward one sense over the others will resonate more with readers who favor the same sense and less so with those who do not.
