A Thousand Words
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Let's turn that around a bit. As a writer, if you can take one moment in time, like a picture, and turn it into a sensory overload, you would have a great piece of prose. Stretch that special moment out, describing what your senses are taking in - how the character feels, what he/she sees, senses, touches, smells, tastes - you know what I mean. Then you have taken one special moment and made it into virtual reality. What a great way to get your readers involved. A great tip to expand your writing!
