Keep a notebook of descriptions you find that stand out because they stimulated your senses. The more senses you incorporate into your narrative, the more vivid the imagery will be. Sight alone isn’t as effective. Remember, your sense of smell is one of the strongest memory triggers due to how it’s wired to your brain. What do you see when you think of the scent of the ocean or a spring rain? Scents familiar to your reader will bring your story alive.
