OUR DAILY PINS

Stop what you're doing and listen. What do you hear?

I hear the loud humming of snow blowers, scratching sounds of shovels, and my son coughing. If you watched yesterday's weather report, you'll guess I live on the east coast.

By showing you with one of the 5 senses instead of writing, I live in Rhode Island, you were able to figure it out. As writers, we can rely on our readers having a lifetime of stored information. As writers, we need to tap into that information to help the readers see with their minds. It's not only fun as a writer but much more interesting for the reader.

What are some ways you can use the sense of hearing in your writing?

Describe the tones in the voices of your characters. Is your 5 year old saying, "please?" or "Pleeease?" I bet you heard that whine in the second please.
Let us hear the sounds of food sizzling or the tea kettle whistling.
Is your character wearing heels that click-clack or shoes that flip-flop?
Did someone slam a drawer or close it gently?

Adding this type of description shouldn't stand out in your writing. It should melt in and help the reader feel connected to your story.

As you read magazine articles or books this week (hopefully all you busy moms will have a little free time to read on your own) focus on how other writer's use the sense of hearing in their writing. Then take out your writer's notebook and have fun practicing with your own examples.
