Appealing to the Senses in Literature

Describe an ordinary object or a memorable scene using detail that appeals to the senses.

Note this example of using sensory detail in fiction: “The hills across the valley of the Ebro’ were long and white. On this side, there was no shade and no trees and the station was between two lines of rails in the sun. Close against the side of the station there was the warm shadow of the building and a curtain, made of strings of bamboo beads, hung across the open door into the bar, to keep out flies.” Hemingway, “Hills Like White Elephants”
