Look Around You - Your Five Senses and Writing

Learn how to use the five senses in your writing to bring it alive. Go from "telling" to "showing." Note: Students will need a glass of something to drink – touch the glass; see the glass; taste the beverage; hear the sound it makes when you’re drinking or setting it down; smell the beverage

Your world around you: Observation is one of the most important tools of a writer. Learn to listen, watch, smell, touch, and taste the world around you and use it to color your writing.

The Five Senses Game: This game will bring your five senses to the front of your brain.

Describing the Five Senses: How do you call something soft without using the word soft?

How do authors who are missing one or more of their five senses write? Learn about some authors who are still creating even if they are missing one or more of their five senses.

About the Author

Carol L. Paur lives with her family in Wisconsin. Isasnora Snores is her first middle grade children’s book. It's about an infant who snores so loudly she shatters glass and throws people into fits of hysterical laughter. At the start of Covid, Paur wrote mini scripts based on Isasnora Snores and downloaded them onto YouTube. She also created a podcast titled: Talking to Myself. It's geared toward young listeners. Paur is a volunteer and member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and Wisconsin Writers’ Association. She blogs monthly. Fans can meet Paur during her "Café Tour" (socially distant and with masks) as she discusses her writing and autographs your copy of Isasnora Snores. Paur is grateful for her family, friends, mentors, and supporters.
