How important is smell in your writing?
— Women Writers (@WomenWriters) August 16, 2014
@WomenWriters I use scent for various visceral things in my writing. Scent and taste bring the reader into the character's immediate world

@WomenWriters Smell is a key sense we must describe in our writing. It can evoke memories, heartbreak, fear. It's all about the smell.

Someone we know lost her smell for three years and wrote about not remembering until healed. .@WomenWriters

@WomenWriters I think it's very important. It's one of the ways I immerse the reader into the story.

@WomenWriters I just hope my writing doesn’t stink. The sensory is always important. Smell, I think, is the most neglected.

Very important. Main characters have specific scents associated with them. RT “@WomenWriters: How important is smell in your writing?”
