Thoughts, insights and resources shared by writers who attended the Northern Colorado Writers Conference:
I learned to divulge my characters into their surroundings better by engaging the senses. By using sight, smell, taste, touch, and sound in the descriptions, the reader can feel what the character feels. I'm also inspired to try not just third person perspective, but first and (if I am brave) second person too! I learned that each perspective can bring a different tone and mood to the writing, and to try them all to see what is the best fit for your story.
