Heightening Allthe Senses

As we have seen in previous chapters, in order to bring fictional characters to life, it is important to bring all five senses into play.

In romantic fiction, these senses are heightened for maximum stimulation. Cars go faster, food tastes better, clothes feel silkier and voices are softer and warmer.

Things look better, too. Cars gleam, meals are feasts for the eyes, garments cling in all the right places, hair and eyes shine and flash, skin and muscles are soft or hard to the touch.
