Tuesday's Writer's Tip Continuing the senses - Taste #MFRWAuthor #BWLPublishing #Scent

Another sense we often forget when writing is the sense of taste. How often do we write a sentence like "She dug into the chicken and mashed potatoes." We might right about the smell of fried chicken but how often do we write something like this. She tasted the fried chicken and savored the hint of spices on her tongue.

As we eat our food, we often thing about the taste. "The coffee was bitter. Or The coffee tasted like it was nine tenths water rather than the strong brew she craved.

There are a lot of taste words to help in the description. Like sweet, sour, bitter salty. Bringing the taste of what the characters are eating can bring the reader into the story and trigger their taste buds with memories. So consider adding a bit of the taste of things into the story.
