Why Do Exercises? — 4 Comments

  1. I use the five senses much in my books. They are somewhat of a secondary, inanimate character. Had a lot of fun especially using food to help define the characters. How food smells, looks, and tatstes and the characters response to food and beer is a common thread.

  2. This kind of exercise makes a lot of sense. 🙂

    I saw the one man show “Defending the Caveman” last weekend, and he talked about how women have to touch everything when they’re shopping. He mimed the way we go through a rack of clothes, patting and stroking and testing the softness of the fabric. It was perfect. Putting that in writing would be excellent practice.

  3. The sense of smell is the most primitive, and has a huge ability to get you in the gut.

    I love using it – our society is too sanitized!

    I have a problem with my husband cooking all kinds of things, though. My sense of smell does not saturate, so I can still smell your perfume – or his curry – many hours later, and it gives me a headache. Which reminds me, I should use that in Book 2 – the lack of saturation and the headache.

    Thanks for the reminder.

    Also, thanks for the Commentluv. You and Holly Jahangiri have it, and I will get it one of these days when I have some spare learning ability.

    • Commentluv is one of my favorite blog things! I get to follow the links back and read so many wonderful posts — like yours!

      That lack of scent saturation must be nightmarish. Sometimes the only way I can tolerate a smell is knowing I’ll eventually get used to it.

      I’ve spent my extra money for this month, but next month I’m going to buy your book in paper. Keep working on book 2!
